Ten Canadian Artists | Ten Styles of Painting


Who is art for? | by Eleanor Doran

Who is art for? How do we recognize it? Is art a commodity?

Can it bring about social change? What is artistic autonomy? How do we discuss and evaluate contemporary art?

So many questions that seem to define what is produced in the contemporary art world and how is it received. An ongoing discussion that engages the theorist as much as the artist.

I ran across this website quite by accident. The course, Critical Thinking in Contemporary Art Practice, offers an opportunity to assess/reassess where we are as artists in a rapidly and ever-changing world.
