This one week unit explores six pieces of contemporary art. The materials included in this purchase are a four-lesson ppt (based on 60-90 minute class periods) and a student packet with rigorous text-based questions for writing and discussion. It is possible to expand the unit to two weeks or choose only a few pieces for an even shorter mini-unit. This mini-unit has a culminating written task for students to complete. Pieces are by the following artists: Hank Wilis Thomas, Awol Erizku, Debra Cartwright, Kerry James Marshall, Jordan Casteel, and Lina Viktor.
