Untitled Art Project — couple thoughts

posted at 13:21 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

If you’re not familiar with it, Paddy’s been covering the new art world reality series starting production soon (if it hasn’t already started).

I’m of a divided mind. On one hand, the general public doesn’t just simply not appreciate contemporary art — it actively has contempt for it. If UAP can help this situation even a tiny bit, it’s all good.

On the other hand, if the artists who are picked for the show don’t actively attempt to hijack it for their own agenda, then I have no respect for any of them. The thing should really never make it to TV. Every artist in the show should be disrupting it for their own purposes. This disruption should be so severe that no mere reality show producer could create anything significant from it. Seriously, any artist that allows their media image to manipulated by some producer is by definition a very bad contemporary artist. permanent link to this post
