2. PROJECT-BASED ART

The paradigm of contemporary art

Variables

Factors

How art is considered (as…)

EXPRESSION

PRODUCTION

How we judge it (in terms of…)

SINGULARITY

BEAUTY

 

 

CLASSICAL ART:

Expression / Beauty

MODERN ART:

Expression / Singularity

CONTEMPORARY ART:

Production / Singularity

 

 

FROM THE OBJECT (painting, sculpture…) TO THE PROJECT

FROM ONE TRADITIONAL MEDIA TO MANY TRADITIONAL AND NEW MEDIA

  •   Interdisciplinarity
  •   Questioning the boundaries, expanding what can be considered art
  •   Dematerialization of the artwork

 

FROM AUTOGRAPHIC TO ALLOGRAPHIC ART (Nelson Goodman)

  •   The artist might not produce their art by his own hand

  > manager or movie director

  •   Optionally, the discredit of craftsmanship

 

FROM SPACE TO TIME

  •   Visual arts > performing arts / cinema / literature
  •   The importance of context

            > physical: installation / social-cultural: web of references

 

THE NEED OF A “STORY“.

  •   Justification is as important as the artwork
  •   The explanation / the interpretation

            > “user guide” (to give meaning/how to read, experience)

 

The artwork is not a single object any more:

It is a device -and a story- that provokes  experiences / sensations

Artwork> DISCURSIVE (TELLING) DEVICE
