Art Management Master Course: Cultural Territories / Performance Art
Continuing from last week subject, the assignment was regarding the use of one of the charts (Gantt chart, Flowchart, PERT Network Chart) to indicate the production progress of one of my past dance projects, at last I chose Gantt chart to present my work.
This week two interesting Subjects are Cultural Territories and Performance Art. First, in the section of Project Management, we focus on Cultural Territories which covers 1) Identikit of Capital Cultural Territory which lists the influence of external and internal factors, and 2) Dimension of Cultural Territory explains what is the cultural asset. These are extensive and complex texts, however it is a pleasure to study the cultural matter in depth. Second, the focus of the section of Arts is Performance Art, while reading several artworks in 1950s and 1960s by different artists, I am impressed by their creativity.
這星期的两個很有意思的主題是文化領域和行為藝術。首先，於項目管理的部份，我們主要集中在文化領域這主題，而內容包含1) 並圖顯示基本文化領域受那些外在及內在因素影響；2) 文化領域的重要性，解釋什麼是文化資本。含義廣泛而又複雜，但能深入學習文化素材是有趣的事情。其次，在藝術部份我們重點放在行為藝術上，同時，我們細看了幾個1950－1960年不同藝家的藝術作品，他們的創作力令我感受深刻。
Here are some of the artworks we read that inspire me:
Jackson Pollock – Painting in his studio
Above: Allan Kaprow -18 Happenings in 6 Parts
Below: Jim Dine – The Smiling Workman
After several days of cloudy and rainy, Wednesday it was sunny, so I walked around near school during lunch break. Right behind the school, at Piazza San Lorenzo, I found that there is an English theatre show “The Medici Dynasty” which is about the stories of Medici family and Florence is on.
幾天的多雲及下雨天，星期三終於天晴，在中午小休時我在學校附近走一圈。走到學校後面的聖老楞佐廣場，看到一個關於Medici家族及佛羅倫斯歷史的英語劇場 “The Medici Dynasty” 正在上演。
Living in Florence more than half year, sometimes I miss the Chinese foods even though Italian cuisine is excellent. Few days ago, I had lunch in a Chinese restaurant near the school, I ate dumplings which were as delicious as those I have eaten in my home city Macau.
