The culture has been divided so much, now people only know Hip-Hop as "rap music" and not as the culture that it once was. The problem is that Hip-Hop music is such an influencing medium for the youth to communicate with, that people all around the world have gained a respect for Hip-Hop that they dont usually have for any other kinds of music. Thus, the music has become more popular then the other aspects of Hip-Hop which has led to their public disappearance. The main cause for Hip-Hop's death is the way the industry has used the culture only to make ...

Intellectual Life Of The Painters Of The Early Renaissance - 1,298 words
Before attempting to answer the question it is important to consider what we mean by early Italian Renaissance. Unlike many periods in history the Renaissance has no obvious start and end dates, for the purposes of this assignment I will define the approximate period within which to look as about 1390 to about 1520. 1390 represents the time when the Carrara court in Padua was gaining an intellectual reputation of excellence, as well as this being about the time that two Roman coin like medals were cast of Francesco II and his father. This represents a typically renaissance trait of looking to antiquities for inspiration, as will be discussed later. The time around 1520 represents when Raphae ...

History Of The Surrealist Art Movement - 1,796 words
Sometimes through history, something comes along that changes everything as it has been known thus far. In the 1920s, such an art movement came around that changed the way art was defined. The Surrealist art movement combined elements of its predecessors, Dada and cubism, to create something unknown to the art world. The movement was first rejected, but its eccentric ideas and unique techniques paved the way for a new form of art. The Surrealist art movement stemmed from the earlier Dada movement. Dada was a movement in which artists stated their disgust with the war and with life in general. These artists showed that European culture had lost meaning to them by creating pieces of anti-art o ...

Improv. - 1,852 words
It's Wednesday night at Chicago's most venerable coffeehouse, the No Exit. An improv group called Bang Bang has been playing here late on Wednesdays. They're supposed to be hot. They're supposed to be good. They're supposed to have an interesting approach. The Chicago Tribune ran a friendly piece about them in the Sunday arts section. Which makes what I'm seeing now that much more puzzling. There may be times when these Bang Bang people really are all the things they're supposed to be, but not tonight. They're terrible tonight. More than terrible: They seem utterly and completely clueless. I can't imagine how they might even get to good from where they are tonight. At least one company membe ...

Live Aid-style Celebrity Marathon. - 511 words
Understanding the current place of protest in music, however, requires turning away from that old vision of a throng singing choruses written by iconic troubadours, not to mention its 1980's counterpart, the Live Aid-style celebrity marathon. Today's protest music more closely echoes the street politics rock has always inspired: the focus is scattered, the voices dissonant and the levels of involvement wildly mixed. This noisy arena finds strength in its very diversity. The most potent protests may not even seem, at first, like protests at all. Topical balladry of the Woody Guthrie style is still prevalent; in fact, Guthrie himself has been revived by young artists like Billy Bragg and Wilco ...

Edouard Manet - 1,664 words
Edouard Manet is regarded as the inventor of modern art and the godfather of Impressionism. He is also the last figure of the great classical art. He wasn't the Impressionist but young painters adopted his dynamic style of painting, sharp natural lighting and bold colouring. Manet was a shocking artist; his career is studded with scandals that he did not seek to create. He rejected traditional, academic style of painting and conventional themes. He began taking everyday objects and pulling out of those objects new feelings and creations which provoke thought. With broad strokes Manet used a vivid summary technique. Manet adopted bold brush strokes, and emphasized certain characteristics cons ...
