Work that requires significant viewer participation is "lesser" because it shys away from making a statement (since the statement is very much so based on the viewer/participant's desire for exploration).
personal art fairs.
besides, art isn't a trend.
art has trends
ya, and it's been on a shitty trend for years. It's all pretentious and out of reach of most people. And for that reason it lacks substance and meaning. The practical result is talentless dribble.The only art left is corporate art,,,and it's accessible by almost all,,,just one problem, it's soulless garbage, feeding the great consumerist machine. Nom!Nom!Nom! Lets hope that the internet continuous a movement away from this trend.
*drivel not dribble,,,
Dumbing down in order to increase Youtube hits, which is the ultimate gauge of what is good.
Honestly though I'm tired of the pretentious thinky wanking you see elevated today. I,m much more interested by the decorative artists who are making a purely aesthetic work, with no deep cultural meaning or message. Isnt a pretty picture enough some times?
Also, I expect a hedge fund to pay scandalous amounts for some mid-century abstract art of some sort.
@AK_tv47 : Just curious, what is the trend that art has been on for years? What does it look like? Somebody should tell art about the internet already? Also who is Nom?
More interactive/physical computing stuff, like Nikes SXSW in 2012.
sounds like it's trying to blend/merge our organic abilities with technology. Almost like a technology art age.
