In “Deriving Meaning” we learned how art communicates complex ideas and emotions and the ways in which this is achieved, as well as how writings about art enrich our experience of it. Select one work of art from the chapter 4 online Power Point. Discuss the meaning that may be derived from that one artwork using two of the following philosophical positions: formalist criticism, ideological criticism, psychoanalytic criticism, structuralism, post-structuralism, deconstruction, feminist criticism, or relational aesthetics. How do the philosophical positions impact the meaning of the work? Do they contradict or complement each other? Discuss each of the 2 philosophical positions individually in your essay.
The goal here would be to gain an understanding of each of these philosophical positions and to communicate your understanding.
