elmZ Posted August 28, 2017 Share Posted August 28, 2017 Had a conversation with someone while playing a game that I thought was worth sharing. So we got on the topic of art and why art is art. Well, I guess a lot of people these days have put boxes on art. Things deemed "too traditional" or "racist" or "sexist" have been attacked. I feel like art is only art when there is a freedom of expression. Once you start throwing labels around, it no longer is art but a label of one's taste or personalty. The guy I was talking with said that he feels like art is dying and he once thought it was down to technology but it turns out, it is down to people. Instead of looking at a painting, a sculpture, ect and allowing yourself to feel something for you, people are looking at things and trying to figure out what kind of person the artist is and what they should be labeled as. Not sure when this all happened but I thought it was an interesting topic. So what to you is "art"? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
