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.
