Question-Describe how art changed in the 1920’s
Art in the 1920’s changed drastically because of these important events. First there was the great migration. Which was when African Americans were moving to the urban north during the First World War. This lead to the growth of music and literature.200, 000 thousand African Americans settled in Harlem. It became an area flourishing with culture and ideas. Then there was the jazz culture. It emerged in the south and Midwest; African Americans created it. The sound merged blues, ragtime, and popular music based on improvisation. Next came the Harlem renaissance. African Americans poets, artists began expressing the African American experience. Harlem New York City became the gathering point for African American artists wrote of the Joys of being an African American. Fourthly there was Marcus Garvey. He saw that everywhere African Americans were exploited and organized the “back to Africa movement”. He was later jailed for this. But at same time gave African Americans a sense of pride. Finally there is the modern art. Modern art reflected the mood. After World War 1 the idea of progress was questioned, how could society kill millions of people? Art began to experiment with these ideas and made into abstract styles. And these are the events that changed art in the 1920’s.
Some of the changes that happened in the art were because of the war. The war had so much emotional feeling to it, and it was something that everyone and everywhere was affected by. So people starting expressing their feelings and everything that was going on in their lives towards music and art, this was know as being abstract. That’s means being different. Like putting green and yellow clouds on racetrack with a robot serving food to animals. It’s just random. Then there was music. Such as jazz and the blues and ragtime. When your playing Jazz its like you can whomever you won’t and express yourself through your instrument. You can someone that you’re having a bad day without telling them with your words. You do it through your instrument. I feel like that if we look back on this age on art, we can learn a lot from it and get brand new ideas.
