For those who have taken an interest in the world of contemporary art and its processes, it means the graphic art of painting, drawing, on sculpture, photography, multimedia, etc. inevitably "elitism" nickname is raised to resentment apparent darkness of a large part of its production and waste time, effort and the process. That art contemporain is the province of the elite and has little or nothing to do with the lives of the majority.
Tickling perceived labour at the end of the 1980s and its sensitivities offence by and artists such as Serrano and Mapplethorpe to a large extent, introduces our Government culture wars. Tensions that led to the castrating symbolic of our institution of Government support of the process of creating artists of America, the National Endowment for the arts (NEA). This unfortunately is the result of Congress mandated the dismantling of PBN grants subsidies and its brilliant panel peer review program, fearing that left to their own devices artists create work that could be interpreted to some offensive. Disassembly is independently that the success of the program has been brilliant, helping to launch hundreds of careers and become the cornerstone of the artistic community.One of the greatest artists of America, a national treasure, Chuck Close, had to say, "of all the awards I received from my life, no never meant more me than my scholarship PBN.".And with hundreds of others.
At the time of the disappearance of politicization of Arts Fellowship program of the NEA nary a voice was raised in our political class to protect this if essential sense of the nation identity program. Instead of this there were many piles, pimping for political reasons.After all, the art world has little political weight and "elitist label" could easily be evoked without fear of reprimand or accountability .c ' is the attitude of the Government which continues to this day, (please see "a nation of shame;") On Wall Street bailout by the full support of our art traditions with a pipette "(04.14.09)"
Maybe, just maybe all that is changing.I come back just of France where strikes and general disorganization called F.I.A.C. art fair took lieu.Galeries around the world exposed and works of art have been beautifully displayed in dedicated magnificent glass belle epoque "Grand Palais" as well as a court adjacent tents at the Museum of the Louvre.Art on display by hundreds of galleries from around the world was not only challenging but exciting.And visitors come from all of Europe and much of the Americas, but most of the strikes far braving and general chaos, Paris and its surroundings.
Yes, art was for the sale and a large part indeed sell, but it was not the draw for the tens of thousands of visitors standing in long lines to gain admission b.c block ' was a less in this notice of viewers, something much more basic, see much more viscérale.Vous, contemporary art has become much and particularly young people, a mirror of our lives, that we are, how us communicate, how it is always possible to coexist and more fundamentally what similarities we share.
Contemporary art has long left the aerated élitiste.Dans fashion my travel may have been best explained by Octavie Modert, cultural Minister Luxembourg, whose Ministry is responsible for the supervision of the brilliant I.M. Pei, housing construction the "Museum art Grand-Duc Jean' more commonly known as the" Mudam'. """Yes", it will recognize, "there was a strong public resistance to a Museum of contemporary art at Luxembourg, but we just all recognize a role important contemporary in the lives of our young people and, now, for most of our citizens."
This is a lesson we all want good account.
