MIA visit

The three pieces i chose at the MIA where: "standing girl" by egon chile, a mexican statue called "Choc Mule" and a conganiese mask called "Peme." To me these works convey very different meaning but come together in a non formative text. The works are all abstract depictions of the body and relate in that way. Its was interesting to see how the different views of the human body where articulated. THis lead me to think of art history and ultimately to Venus statues cultivated from many different country's. in These statues you see basically the same thing, a woman with her sexual organs exaggerated and the face and other parts of the body made smaller or nonexistent. These three pieces give you a look at three very different cultures but ultimately shows how humans view the body.

  1. I would really like to see the images in this post. I feel like it could really add to your position on the relations of the pieces.
