Medium of the Art / Technique of the Artist
Yayoi Kusama is know for his very detailed intamint works. As a sufferer from schizoaffective disorder she used small covering kind of circle pattern to show the public the world she lives in every day. The important piece to Nets Infinity (two) is that each white dot is actually paint with a hollow circle of read. If you do not view this work in person it is easy to assume that the painting is just white poke-a-dots on a red canvas. The piece communicates the tiredness that the artist feeling from the difficult endeavor that is living with a mental illness. The work is busy and there forward invokes a sense of immediacy followed by a flood of tired
Design of the Museum
The most enjoyable room of the museum is the S.F.I. Exhibition Hall in Honor of Avery Myles. The space is designed like a traditional white cube gallery space and as a traditional fine artist it is also the set up I am most attracted to. The wide floor plan gives way to an easily navigable space with the particular collection installed all around the outer walls. The Gallery is clean and professional, which elevates some of the work in the current show Intra-Action: Women Artists from the Harn Collection that would be considered craft into high brow art.
Art and Core Values
As I am in my last year of my fine arts degree I think everyday about the day I will be curating my own shows and leaving my intellectual mark on art history. The Guerilla Girls graphic work/ activism about feminism in the context of art history is absolutely something that fits within my core values. I consider myself a strong feminist woman and much of my person art work deals with the idea of gender equality in the art world. This 2012 laser print where the women from the classical painting Olymipia's head is replaced with a gorilla head. This symbolizes the radical feminist group of art activists the "Guerrila girls". This group uses art to actively fight against sexism in the art world and used this graphic campagin to challenge "who" and "what" gets to be shown in places like The MET.
