“MAIN REASONS WHY THE ART WORLD NAUSEATES ME”

14 Apr

GugParty-704x1024Thanks to my colleague Dany Louise for pointing out this great article by Sola Agustsson at Alternet: Why the Contemporary Art World Is Insufferable, Corrupted by the Super-Rich. Spoilers:

  1. Art collectors treat art as an investment.
  2. Art is a spectacle.
  3. Conceptual art is a joke.
  4. Art factories steal souls.
  5. Art school is kind of a scam.
  6. Women artists and artists of colo(u)r are sidelined.
  7. Money for art in public schools is dwindling (the USA kind, i.e publicly funded, not private schools)

Agustsson is absolutely bang on with every one of these points and I know a lot of the Career Suicide Squad will agree too; read the article.
