Proposal Visit to Brooklyn Museum by Ken Johnson Proposal Visit to Proposal Visit to Brooklyn Museum by Ken Johnsonby Ken Johnson Your assignment in addition to the preliminary proposal is to visit the Brooklyn Museum https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/visit/ and see the show reviewed above
by Ken Johnson.
I will not be able to be in class again this week, but will be next week. I ask you
to read the review by Johnson, read Susan Sontag’s Regarding the Pain of Others, Link http://www.imagearts.ryerson.ca/michalak/html/CD8320/Sontag,%20Susan
%20(2016)%20Regarding%20the%20Pain%20of%20Others.pdf see the show and write your own review of it taking into consideration your perspective, your own
experiences and knowledge, and what both Johnson and Sontag have to say. Johnson talks a lot about curatorial choices made for this show. You must address
this aspect of the show, though not to the exclusion of other perceptions. Just as you make choices to include or delete photographs you have taken so too
curators use discernment in making their choices. This is an excellent opportunity to see a single subject with universal meaning addressed in photographs.
Just as Johnson wants to see this subject another way, how would you present it based on the 3 factors given (your viewing and photographic practice, Sontag
and Johnson).Use quotes from them to support your own thoughts.
