My goal is to introduce you with the two most fundamental tools of art history, which are formal analysis of the primary source (artwork) and secondary source research. Learning to look closely and practicing describing an object will carry over into any field as will learning to use the library and internet as research tools.
You are to complete a research paper in the form of an exhibition pamphlet. The pamphlet is intended for the audience who frequent museums and wish to learn more about what it is they are looking at. The subject of the exhibition is entirely up to you but should be thematic in nature (rather than a laundry list).
My restriction is that the artists you include must be reputable and exhibit professionally as artists (rather than as illustrators, etc.) at museums. You must also include work by 10 artists.
Topic: You could focus on artists who use a particular historic or alternative process You could investigate a process, for example the Daguerreotype at its invention and its contemporary usage by artists such as Chuck Close.. You may focus thematically showing artists who concentrate on such genres as the nude, landscape or architectural photography. You may consider approaching themes within specific time periods or groups important to the history of photography such as the Photo-Secession. You may consider working with only contemporary living artists working in a particular genre or alternative or historic processes.
Notes on the Narrative. Write an introductory text of 2000 words that explains/introduces your photographs to the viewer. Writing in the third person, explain the connections between the works, introduce some of the history behind them. This introduction will include your thesis addressing the significance of the exhibition in relation to the history of photography. “I like flowers” is not a thesis, however “in the genre of still life photography nature and flowers have a dominant presence in the history of photography” is a thesis. You are expected to submit your final draft, NOT a first draft. You goal here is to engage the reader and elucidate your “exhibition” goals. This section will require endnotes (you should be able to convert footnotes to endnotes on your word documents).
As with any research paper, you are required to properly cite your sources. See the following:

If you need help describing rooms or organizing your paper, this book is a great place to start.
