John Wang, Cabot, 2016. History of Art and Architecture.
Tour Description: My tour draws from objects as diverse as an 18th century rock in China, a modern architectural drawing, and a Van Gogh painting. By viewing these objects in their historical and social contexts, visitors are invited to consider how artists position and engage themselves with the broader society through art.
Ege Yumusak, Leverett, 2016. Philosophy.
Tour Description: My tour is called A Pigment of Imagination. I trace the use of different pigments across history, and once we have all colors at our disposal I scrutinize objects by raising questions about representation and intention. We start with an ancient object from China and end with a pre-War object from Germany.
