READER DIANNEB AND THE PROBLEM WITH CONTEMPORARY ART:
‘Yeah, I can relate. Lately I’ve been feeling bored by it all. Seems like such a long time since I was truly inspired by an artwork or exhibition. What happened to creativity? It used to be something we valued, nurtured, strived for. The focus has shifted to ‘production’ rather than ‘creation’. We embrace the lowest denominators. Endless selfie taking — everyone is photographer now. Playing with software filters — everyone is a digital artist now. The most successful artists today are the best promoters. Producers and promoters– that’s the art world today. Yawn.
Rodrigo thanks for expressing what we were feeling. I agree with the other commenters.’
