I know it's pointless. In Russian art social net we're discussing this topic until we all begin to yell (virtually). However... I yet want to hear this again. What makes art "good" or "bad" in terms of sales?
- Choreographer must know how to dance,
- Composer must know music grammar,
- Writer must be perfect in his language,
- Architect must know everything from the foundation to the roof,
- Artist - ?
Many nowadays artists can't even draw. But they sell well. So does it mean this field is perfect for a diletante? (but who is really perfect in marketing?)
Or - "There is no business like ART business"?? The trickiest of all...
Profits on art business take 3rd place after oil and drugs...
We look at modern art and we dont' say "great" any longer.
We say, "cool", "hot", "peculiar", "interesting", ... like we're talking about food or TV program.
So who is the Driver of this speeding nonsense?
Share your thoughts, please.
