Issue Presentation

Senior Thesis: Issue Presentation



Do a 20-minute presentation with a partner on a relevant art issue in your discipline. Use visuals to accompany the presentation. Don’t just focus on stylistic trends; make sure you discuss the theoretical ideas that set the context of the issue (both past and present). Set up the theoretical landscape in a clear articulate way so we understand why the issue has developed and are given information so we can form our own “informed”opinion on the issue. The presentation should be informative, well-organized, creative, engaging, and intellectually rigorous.
