IN CLASS CATALOGUING ASSIGNMENT

IN CLASS CATALOGUING ASSIGNMENT

 

You should have a list of photographers in your sketchbook that have been mentioned in class. Today you will choose five photographers to begin cataloguing.

 

Create a folder on your Desktop titled CATALOGUE and within that folder create a separate folder with each photographer’s name. Search through online collections to download 5 examples of each person’s work. Save those images into the folder named for that photographer. Rename each file from 01 to 05. Then create a Microsoft Word file entitled Image List and save this to your photographer’s folder. In this document create a list 01 to 05 and for each image list the title, year, material, and dimensions.

 

**You are NOT allowed to use search engines such as Google Image search, Bing, Yahoo, Tumblr or anything comparable. There are many online catalogues housed on museum websites, gallery websites, artist sties, auction house websites, and so on. As scholar artists we are refining our research methods to the use of more reputable sources. Here are a few places to get you started:

moma.org/explore/collection/index

artic.edu/aic/collections

artnet.com

artcyclopedia.com

getty.edu

Guggenheim.org

Mocp.org

 

Happy researching! Dig deep! There are lots of images out there, dig through them to pick the ones that speak to you.
