Contenda is an experimental contest based on “quiz bowl” events at schools and universities. Contestants are provided with a buzzer to answer the host's questions about artists, artworks, and artistic movements. Screen-based visual clues accompany each question. The public is invited to help the artist create questions about artworks in the collection of the de Young, while also engaging in fun and challenging pop-quizzes developed by the artist.
Dr. Leslie Ross, professor and chair of Art History at Dominican University of California, will explore the relationship between written texts and visual images in the history of art from ancient to modern times through a wide-ranging and thought-provoking series of selected examples from diverse cultures and geographic areas. Her focus will be on the use of words as art and in art, from the obvious to the elusive, the puzzling to the profound.
