For this assignment, students are asked to imagine themselves as a curator of Ancient or Medieval Art (prehistory to ca. 1300 CE). In this role, you will select five (5) artworks that fit a selected theme and propose an exhibition of those artworks. Your exhibition may compare works across time and cultures, but a good curatorial thesis will remain focused and narrow in its scope (for instance, comparing the idealized male form in Egypt, Greece, and Rome would be too much for this project. But looking at Archaic Greece in comparison to Classical Greece is appropriate). Themes may be cultural, stylistic, or even based in a discussion of material – any uncertainty should be discussed with your instructor. This assignment requires scholarly research.The written component of this project should be 500-750 words, or 2-3 pages, in length. Please limit your papers to 3 pages; a too-long paper needs more assertive revision to clarify the main thesis and supporting arguments. Use 11.5 or 12-point font, preferably Times. Double space your text and use 1” margins. Number each page starting on page 2. No cover page is necessary. In the top right corner of the first page include your last name, date, and section number single spaced. Proofread your paper before submission.
