Questions In Art Criticism|
Art critics help viewers perceive, interpret, and judge artworks. Both art critics and art historians share a strong interest in constructing meaning from artworks. While critics tend to focus more on modern and contemporary art from cultures close to their own, art historians tend to study works made in cultures that are more distant in time and space. In addition to lessons focused on understanding artworks from historical cultures, Chicana and Chicano Space includes modern and contemporary artworks. Lesson one and lesson six focus on critical inquiry.
