Presentation 
In twenty minutes, teach us something substantive about a contemporary artist to watch, or a group of artists or artworks you see as connected.  Consider the best way to deliver the information so that it is unforgettable, and uniquely connects form and content.

Structure your information in some way – a handout, a Powerpoint, prezi, a blog are the traditional ways; a monologue, a performance a film also work.  Do not try to wing it. Avoid relying on others’ material (video, for example) too much  Twenty minutes is a long time.  Be prepared and have something substantive to teach.


Presentations, like all your Submissions for this class, are compositions: what form, style, and content are necessary to most effectively make your point?
