This blog is dedicated to an Independent Studies course via Ringling College of Art and Design, while studying abroad in Antwerp, Belgium.
For the next 5 months, I will be performing an extensive look into the many museums and galleries Euope has to offer, and discussing how the influences of the past directly contribute to the development of Contemporary Art as it stands today. Through photographs, as well as fliers and other promotional material from exhibitions, I will provide visual material to aid in the discussion everything from the specifics of a certain artist and certain pieces, to the historical context and region the work can be found. Through this in-depth study, I hope to gain a greater understanding of what art is, and has been, and how it contributes to my role in the art world.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
