Abstract Title

Ancient Greek Visual Rhetoric Experience

Abstract

In my trip to Athens alongside my Theatre, Performance, Gender, and Sexuality in Greek History class, I plan to study gender-nonconformity, pederasty (and other various homoerotic relationships), and creatures that exist in Ancient Greek Civilization and mythological culture. I am a sculptor, and in my current stages of art-making as a student here at Kent State University, I find myself exploring the concepts of the humanity, bodily dysmorphia, gender identity, and modern sexual ideologies in which I will continue to experience as a queer person.

I will explore a new visual rhetoric that can be applied to my own artmaking in terms of design (such as: moods, patterns, textures, colors, shapes, weights) and concept by documenting literal pieces of art or folklore relating to homoeroticism and creature-mythology, in addition to relevant iconic architectural-structure and costume aesthetics. For my creative project, I am planning on creating a piece of fine art that is influenced by the techniques and concepts that I will have had gathered from this trip.

While in Athens, I plan to study specifically at the National Archeological Museum, The National Art Museum, The Benaki Museum, and Museum of Modern Greek Culture.
