Contemporary Artists and Art

21 01 2010

The institutions of art have been criticized for regulating what is designated as contemporary art.  Corporations have attempted to integrate themselves into the contemporary art world: exhibiting contemporary art within their premises, organizing and sponsoring contemporary art awards and building up extensive collections of corporate art.  There are close relationships between publicly funded contemporary art organizations and the commercial sector.  From one perspective, contemporary art is the art of the immediate present.  However, in the institutional settings of the museum, the art market, and academia, contemporary art designates new currents in art since 1970.  Although the term postmodernism did not become current until the early 1980s, it is descriptive of the course contemporary art has taken from the early 1970s to the present.

Contemporary Artists
Contemporary art is exhibited by commercial contemporary art galleries, private collectors, corporations, publicly funded arts organizations, contemporary art museums or by artists themselves in artist-run spaces.  For instance, in Britain a handful of dealers represent the artists featured in leading publicly funded contemporary art museums.  Contemporary artists are supported by grants, awards and prizes as well as by direct sales of their work.  At any one time a particular place or group of artists can have a strong influence on globally produced contemporary art; for instance New York artists in the 1980s.  Through periodical workshops – where artists are invited and involved – the interaction between artists exposing and visitors is carried so as to make contemporary art clear and comprehensible to all those people willing to open up their own horizons.  Work of some artists is included in major museum and corporate collections.

Contemporary Art
You may explore the extraordinary variety of contemporary art found on our network of thousands of artist websites.  These portals continue to serve as introductions to the different categories of artistic expression, giving each a distinct destination.  This, in spite of the fact that Contemporary Art enjoys far more working artists making far more art.  We are a dedicated contemporary art gallery that offers paintings, sculpture and commissioned art-works by various contemporary artists. This, in spite of the fact that Contemporary Art enjoys far more working artists making far more art.  (It may be that Contemporary artists are mostly working in “movements” that cannot be classified, due to there being around ten artists in any given “movement”), none of which have shot off an email saying that there’s a new “movement” and “could you please tell others”.

We invite all who are interested in contemporary art to visit us frequently and, to follow our continuing evolution.  Travelling exhibitions and events are also carried in cooperation with important  Museums of Contemporary Art. We are going to rise up against all superficiality and banality—all the slovenly and facile commercialism which makes the work of most of our highly respected artists throughout Italy worthy of our deepest contempt.  We will also play our part in this crucial revival of aesthetic expression we will declare war on all artists and all institutions which insist on hiding behind a façade of false modernity, while they are actually ensnared by tradition, academicism and, above all, a nauseating cerebral laziness.

The distribution of form, or any kind of information is of crucial importance in the given work of art and it directly affects the esthetical value of that work.

Contemporary Art has been Universal

Art is both a part of design, and encompassing of design. Art is without boundaries between countries and people. Art is creative and productive.

Art is a concrete recreation of the world we live in, the universe. A particular piece of art is essentially the artist view of the universe and it reflects the artisits inner unspoken view of the world the artist lives in. Art is validated largely on the basis of how well it can integrate with or enhance these “more important” curriculum areas. Art is also described as a way of showing emotions. Some people express their emotions by drawing.

Art is part of this ancestral inheritance, intimately connected to the land. Art is no panacea but it certainly helps people. Art is so often open to the interpretation of the viewer.

Art is a method of representing man’s interpretation of his environment and communicating that interpretation to others. As such, all art has to be intelligible. Art is something that we all enjoy seeing and to some extent doing. While you may not be a master painter like Rembrandt, Michelangelo or even Picasso you can still admire art when you see it.

Art is taking action to evoke emotion about something and disseminate a message through multiple mediums. I think its great that climate art is taking off. Art is for everyone, and the creation of artwork makes people happy. Many people have told me over the years that they don’t have any artistic talent. Art is dead, and getting deader. All I see in Wright’s work is a bewildering flash of gold leaf.

Contemporary art has been universal; it is recognized as a tool for interpersonal communication and has had far reaching effects. The increased popularity of art exhibitions and on-line art galleries, along with unprecedented sales of diverse art forms using new material such as acrylics, signifies the importance contemporary art has been receiving. Contemporary art is almost exclusively allocated for marketing purposes today, copied, duplicated, and flashed from every surface not taken up by other things. Contemporary art just means “art that has been and continues to be created during our lifetimes”. That means way to keep up with the times!

Museums, galleries and industrial spaces reflect the predominant ideology: As white cubes they are “neutral” spaces that express the coexistence of antagonism, freedom of speech and “difference” in opinion. Thus, in the past years, we have seen an important proliferation of spaces dedicated to the staging of democracy, reflection and dialogue and to facilitating meetings between the public, artists and academics.
