In this lesson students will create a self portrait diptych inspired by the project Typecast. Students will begin by reflecting on their identity and stereotypes they inherited from the world around them. After reflecting on their personal and public identities, students will examine the work of Typecast drawing conclusion to the artists’ overall concept. Lastly, students will use their analyses of Typecast as inspiration for their own diptych featuring their typecast self versus their ideal self.
Inspired by the project Typecast at Photoville from September 12–22, 2019.
