culpture in the last decade has become more of a study on materials and form than a need to convey a story or a person. If you look through the video this week or your textbook, you’ll notice that much of the contemporary and modern sculpture tends to be abstract in some way. This week, I want you to compare a sculpture from antiquity (created before 1750) with a modern or contemporary piece. Here are some questions to consider:

  • What materials were used to create the sculptures? Are they traditional or contemporary?
  • What methods did the artists use to create them? Carving, modeling, etc….
  • Is the message for the pieces dependent on the material? Do you think the sculptures would be less convincing or successful if they were made from something else?
  • How do the two compare? Is it obvious that one is from the past and one from the present? Why or why not?
  • Were either of the pieces commissioned? How do you think this changed the creative process?
  • Were the pieces intended for any specific location? How were they meant to be viewed (if at all)?
  • Do either of the sculptures have a political/social message to give? How do the artists/ lives compare to one another?

Now for choosing the pieces. Below is a table of suggested pieces with their links, but you can choose any sculptures that interest you. You can also mix and match between the works listed below.

Ancient Contemporary/Modern
David. Michelangelo. Little 14 year old Dancer. Edgar Degas.
Terracotta Warrior. Qin Dynastry. China. Shirtfront and fork. Jean ARP.
