One of the most important and influential new media which came to prominence during the “Modern Era” is photography. Four genres in particular have become established. They include: Portrait Photography , a genre that has largely replaced painted portraits; Pictorialism (fl.1885-1915) a type of camera art in which the photographer manipulates a regular photo in order to create an “artistic” image; Fashion Photography (1880-present) a type of photography devoted to the promotion of clothing, shoes, perfume and other branded goods; Documentary Photography (1860-present), a type of sharp-focus camerawork that captures a moment of reality, so as to present a message about what is happening in the world; and Street Photography (1900-present), the art of capturing chance interactions of human activity in urban areas. Practiced by many of the world’s greatest photographers , these genres have made a major contribution to modern art of the 20th century. According to Tara Lal and Mortimer Chatterjee, Sunder’s use of drawing and video in performative modes mark her out as one of the most interesting voices in the contemporary Indian art scene”. Sunder’s works also include writings. Indeed, she finds that the medium or form follows the concept. 38 artists go back to their roots in this multimedia exhibition celebrating trees, transporting you from Japanese islands to Israeli olive groves.

Quadriplegia causes paralysis of the muscles normally used for breathing (the abdominal and intercostal muscles). This makes it difficult to cough effectively and significantly increases the risk of respiratory tract infections and pneumonia. People with quadriplegia often run out of air in the middle of a sentence and find it difficult to project their voices to speak over background noise. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to see if a 12-week therapeutic group singing intervention could improve respiratory function and voice projection for people with quadriplegia. We trained participants to use the muscles in their neck and shoulders more to help control their breath when singing. In comparison to participants who were allocated to a music listening and discussion group, the singing group improved their voice projection and maximum respiratory pressures. They also reported that the singing was enjoyable and motivated physical exercise and social engagement.

The portrait survives largely in the wooden paintings commissioned by academic colleges or national portrait galleries from artists who have facility but little flair or psychological understanding or vision.

Our brains don’t just like rhythm. They are rhythmic. Brainwaves are real , they can be trained , and are constantly manipulated by all sorts of practices from the new age to the mundane. Most of our motor functions happen in time to rhythmic brain pulses, an incredible phenomenon called motor resonance. An adult human walks on average at a pace of about 2 hertz, or two steps per second. If you divide 2 Hz into four beats, you get a pulse of 120 beats per minute, which is such a common musical tempo that most audio editing software has it set as default (Ableton Live, for example). It’s also the most common march tempo You’ll find some ratio of 2 hertz in impromptu finger tapping and a long list of routine motor actions ( Leman 2016 , shout out to JS Matthis 2013 ). Neurologically, it’s the default tempo because it’s roughly in the middle of the spectrum that humans discern as rhythmic vs. arrhythmic, i.e. too fast or slow to perceive as a beat. Too slow and we start to subdivide it, too fast and it becomes a tone. Bernstein, Roberta. Ellsworth Kelly: At Right Angles, 1964 – 1966. Exh. cat.

Thomas Cole (February 1, 1801 – February 11, 1848) was an English-born American artist who helped to found the Hudson River art movement of the mid-19th century. Cole’s paintings are mainly landscapes executed in a Romantic and naturalistic style, and many of his works were completed during lengthy trips to Europe. This Roman aqueduct is a typical example.

His work can be found in museum collections, including The Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; The Guggenheim Museum, New York; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, California; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.; Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Gallery, Edinburgh; Tate Gallery, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut. So, we know that music is old, and may have been with us from when humans first evolved. But why did it arise and why has it persisted? There are many possible functions for music. One is dancing. It is unknown if the first dancers created a musical accompaniment, or if music led to people moving rhythmically. Another obvious reason for music is entertainment, which can be personal or communal. Music can also be used for communication, often over large distances, using instruments such as drums or horns. Yet another reason for music is ritual, and virtually every religion uses music. Claman, Julian.

In terms of listening to music, there is a difference between the intensity and focus required to simply hear music (or hearing anything for that matter) and listening to music. Hearing is the act of perceiving sounds by the ear. In other words, if you are not hearing impaired, your ear will pick up and receive sounds. Good and active listening, on the other hand, is something that is done consciously, and requires some type of focus or engagement on behalf of the individual. Most of us are well aware of the fact that we can hear something without really listening to it or understanding it. Versaci, Nancy R. Recent Painting and Sculpture From the Albert A. List Family Collection. Exh. cat. Providence, Rhode Island: Brown University, 1971.

Many of Burchfield’s paintings represent classic Americana of the period, providing fascinating historical documents. Burchfield is best known for his “American Scene” paintings of the 1920s and ’30s, where he combined nature scenes with views of small-town America.

Musical Practices I includes the basic study of musical elements, vocabularies, and concepts in Western musical traditions, supplemented with global perspectives. Students will develop critical inquiry skills to study how music is experienced throughout Western culture, broadening the student’s understanding of different musical structures, diverse arenas of production, while exploring professional, creative outlets for this knowledge. At the same time common conventions of musical style will be examined which tie the Western tradition together regardless of when or where the music originated. I am glad you enjoyed this hub Shauna, and the art of Frederick McCubbin. Everything you say about his paintings is spot on and his personality was certainly a plus as a teacher. I hope to bring you more talented and interesting artists in the series. Baker, F., Wigram, T., & Gold, C. (2005).

As noted by Harriet Flower in her foundational Ancestor Masks and Aristocratic Power in Roman Culture, ancestor portraits took on additional significance as the dominant feature in the first complex of rooms entered in the Roman house; this complex, which was also visible from the entrance, was designed for formal reception, business, and family ritual.Flower, Ancestor Masks, addresses, inter alia, the architectural framing of conceptual spaces for remembering, seeing, and being seen by ancestors in Greco-Roman tradition, paying special attention to the major role played by mantles in the construction of ancestral identity. Traditionally, lineage was displayed in the home in several ways. For example, images of famous ancestors might be shown with trophies located outside and around the entrance. Portraits in early imperial family trees were sometimes painted on the wall or on a board (tabula), again in rooms near the atrium.Insofar as the ancient tablinum, which could be in a separate room visible from the atrium or in the atrium itself, was where family records were stored and functioned as a reception area and as a working office, the assembly rooms at Bawit, with their multiple cupboards (as at Room 40) and inscribed accounts (see nn54-56), may have stored household papers and accommodated meetings for household business. Imagines, ancient Roman ancestor portraits, although not the object of cult, were associated with cult practices such as offerings made to the Lares, the Penates, and the genius of the paterfamilias.Flower, Ancestor Masks, 210. An honorific mantle could be handed down as well and could dress” the ancestral mask when they were displayed together near the atrium, and both mask and mantle were worn by actors impersonating the deceased at funerals of the special dead of elite inheritance of garments is rarely commented upon in analyses of inheritance in Roman studies or even biblical studies, such as M. Forman, The Politics of Inheritance in Romans (Cambridge, 2011). Forman’s work is useful for the idea of inheritance as symbolic. He discusses one mainstream interpretation of inheritance as a symbol of a relationship transcending the present state of things on earth” (6) and critiques that reading through consideration of Paul’s inheritance language” with recognition of this-worldly” political and social aspects (9-13); honor is closely allied with status and its symbols (12-19). Inheritance conceptualizes a new relationship between themselves as subjects and the new powerful ruler” (23).
