What's Wrong With Art?
When we talk about what’s wrong with art, we’re talking about what’s wrong with our society at-large. The issues of race, identity, housing insecurity, job insecurity in a digital age, nationalism, xenophobia, inclusion/exclusion and many others are all coming to a boil now as the heat has been turned up by an invisible contagion that has exposed burns we thought had been healing. What’s wrong with art is a problem of institutionalisation, of a scaffolding that’s been built on a shaky foundation, of a kind of monolithic gate-keeper that can be exclusionary and elitist, and of a dusty, colonial art history narrative that has lionised white European creativity and diminished anything Other.
We will have a diagnostic panel discussion and Q&A on current and future trends in the arts by bringing together four professionals, to have a collaborative ideation on solutions for a sustainably better future.
