Re: QOTD #3 Dan Flavin’s alternate diagonals [#permalink]
I was confused between C and D. Can anyone please explain?
According to the passage, both “diagonal” works could best be described as

(A) using red and yellow light

(B) initially striking the viewer as garish

(C) toying with boundaries of art

(D) running through the plane at a particular slope

(E) identical in concept

Quote:
Dan Flavin’s alternate diagonals of March 2, 1964 (to Don Judd), an 8-foot-long diagonal beam of light set at a 45-degree angle, is a colourful sculpture of light that is visually arresting, even from across the room.


Hope now is clear. Toying is not correct.

it toys with the boundaries of what we can define as a ready-made in contemporary art and, perhaps, within the field of art production itself.

C says that it toys with general art.

1)

Sometimes the answer is at the beginning, or in the middle or in the end. Yous should read the passage as a whole and grasp what's going on

Quote:
Alternate diagonals was made by Flavin in response to one of his own previous works, the diagonal of May 25, 1963 (to Constantin Brancusi)


This is a good occasion to see how the Official Passage must be king in your preparation. Other sources are good and relieble such as this one from MGRE but notice how alternate diagonals was, it have to be were (plural).

2)

All the answer choices but C are NOT mentioned in the passage.

Moreover,
Quote:
Alternate diagonals known as a ready-made, a work of art composed entirely of objects that anyone could find and put together as the artist has.

which means it is less prone to manipulation.

Hope this helps.

these my answers: C, D, E,A.
First of all, I struggle with lengthy passages. I noticed that I feel more comfortable with scientific passages. I get lost easily in the art passages. Please I need help on tackling lengthy and art passages .

Hi,

there is not a really different in tackling an RC business passage rather than an Art passage.

Actually, it depends on you and your level of standard English. I.E. when you do read, you do not just read facts after facts but you do have a real grasp and an overall picture of the same.

You can train with one million passages and still get them wrong.

The only way to improve your accuracy and speed in the RC zone is to elevate your standard English overall.

Hope this helps.

Reading carefully all the answers are not mentioned but C

Quote:
a spectrum stretching between the “pure” ready-made (any work that essentially could be transferred straight from anyone’s garage to a gallery, such as Duchamp’s Bottle Rack)


As you can see to being transferred straight the is not manipulated.

Ask for further assistance.

Alternate diagonals known as ready-made, a work of art composed entirely of objects that anyone could find and put together as the artist has. This is precisely what is so intriguing about the work— it toys with the boundaries of what we can define as a ready-made in contemporary art and, perhaps, within the field of art production itself.

From the underline sentence and reading the entire passage the tone is for admiration

A is correct
