New Global Art Connection: Paying Tribute to the Wave-Makers (1910-2010)
Kan, Koon Hwee
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v14 spec iss 1.7 Jan 2013
This paper highlights "Wave-Makers (1910--2010)", a collaborative timeline redesign project, which involves interactive and advanced web-based technology to connect and complement arts curricula at two higher education institutions, one located in China and another in the United States. Through in-depth research, video-conferencing, artistic interpretations, and exhibits at both locations, students from the two universities gained appreciation and respect for 20 individuals who made a difference in their respective cultures and helped shape contemporary art worlds. Juxtaposing visuals with students' personal observations through digital photocollage, this paper shows how and why the wave-makers became inspirational models: "Unforgettable Life Stories and Superb Dedication"--Pan Yuliang and Margaret Bourke-White; "Visionary Commitment and Exquisite Sensitivities"--Alvin Ailey and Guan Pinghu; "Admirable Integrity and Solid Convictions"--Xu Shichang and Norman Rockwell; and "Revolutionary Foresight and Groundbreaking Endeavors"--Jackson Pollock and Zhang Daqian. Instructional guidelines for implementing this global art project are also discussed. (Contains 10 figures and 2 footnotes.)
