ISM Self Portraits in Art Theory




















































So one of my favorite assignments to give is a short powerpoint in Art Theory class covering one of the ISMs of art history, from Classicism through Cubism all the way to Performance and Installation. The last slide must be a self-portrait in the style of their ISM. These are a few of the more memorable ones:

Rebekah's self-portrait in pencil emulating Realism
Scott's self-portrait in gold bond powder (seriously) emulating Gothic art, tongue-in-cheek.
Chrystal's self-portrait photo-collage (that's really her body) emulating Feminist Art, and the Guerrilla Girls in particular.

Bravo!
