Aesthetics and art practice 2: art and emotion (6 points)
Synopsis: Issues related to the nature of emotional expression will be considered with reference to the roles played by the artist, viewer and art object. perception as a fundamental component of emotional communication will be discussed as well as the role played by emotion in aesthetic experience. It will be argued that the recognition of emotional content is integral to a full appreciation of an art work, and that artists and philosophers have often contended that the expression of emotion was a defining characteristic of art. Subjective experience and its relation to objective features of art works will be explored. Visual examples will have particular emphasis on contemporary work.
