Judging a piece of work means giving it rank in relation to other works and of course considering a very important aspect of the visual arts; its originality. What criteria do I think are most appropriate for judging the artwork? What evidence inside or outside the artwork relates to each criterion?
Based on the criteria and evidence, what is my judgment about the quality of the artwork? Artworks have "aboutness" and demand interpretation. Interpretations are persuasive arguments.
Some interpretations are better than others. Good interpretations of art tell more about the artwork than they tell about the critic. Feelings are guides to interpretations. There can be different, competing, and contradictory interpretations of the same artwork.
Interpretations are often based on a worldview. Interpretations are not so much absolutely right, but more or less reasonable, convincing, enlightening, and informative.
Interpretations can be judged by coherence, correspondence, and inclusiveness. An artwork is not necessarily about what the artist wanted it to be about.
A critic ought not to be the spokesperson for the artist. Interpretations ought to present the work in its best rather than its weakest light.Art/ Axia Week 1 Assignment Week One Assignment ART/ Introduction to Art October 9, An artist assumes one, or a combination, of four roles when creating a work of art.
