What is contemporary Art­?

Socius: a scene

`Contemporary Art is a type of culture that is a key link between mass cultures, localism, and onto globalism. It varies among many of these different categories, which is the appeal to many. In the article written by Terry Smith, he explains the connection with the world becoming globalized and how contemporary art was a big part of that. It has been looked at for many years as a movement that is a description of the arts as a significant whole. It moves away from the look of modern art and becomes more versatile. It reflects upon the historical aspect of art and submerges from the modern era and into a more significant whole era of art, which reflects many cultures.

The art that is presented in Contemporary Art is the real image of how things worked, what was said, and how it was displayed to the world. It creates its own narrative and is considered to be very real. This appealed to many because it was truthful, there was no confusion it was right to the point and displayed the culture, institution etc. In the piece. Terry Smith’s refers to some work as being recycled through different areas such as romanticism, expressionism that allows the art to become more whole.

I agree with a lot of what was said in Terry Smith’s article. I believe that contemporary art is a gateway era where art changed in many ways, which allowed our world to be globalized. What I expect from contemporary art is the artwork from different cultures displaying the real image of what was going on during that time. I expect to see all different types of artwork and all reflecting different parts of the world. I would like to see artwork from all over the world and see how it compares and link it to the idea of globalization. Contemporary Art is a reflection of the history of the world, which allows viewers to understand the reality of that time and what was going on and how people then were feeling.

Intellectual profile: Lucy Eyears

I am a sophomore here at CU and my main fields that I am interested in are Painting and Art History. I am very interested in Art History and I have loved all the classes I have taken pertaining to it. I am a Studio Art Major and taking different classes to find my niche. I love painting, I am in a Painting class this semester and learning more and more about art as I go on. I personally really liked the Clifford Still exhibition. I found it very informative and I loved all of his work including his early work. His work created a different perspective for me and I learned a lot more about the time frame of art in the 20th century. The last book I read about art was my American Art History book. I took it last semester and I found it very interesting. I enjoyed reading about how art has evolved over years and how society has shaped too it. Besides art, my other main interest is music. I am very passionate about music and it has also helped me broaden my horizons in art class. I find it helpful while I am in school weather it’s a stressful or careless day I am always listening to something. This blog is the only one I check, I am very new to this process and still trying to keep up!

A cultural event that really impressed me was museum of modern art in New york City. I find this museum fascinating and I am always wanting to go visit whenever I am there. There is always something new to see and learn and I find it pleasing whenever I go.

An article I found interesting recently was an article on Andy Warhol. It was an article I found online through my American art class however I love reading it. I find Andy Warhol a very interesting artist and it talked about his work and how he created a new movement of art in America. The article is very informative and it helped me get an idea of what he started.

An idea I have for widening my intellectual horizon is a visual aid in lecture. Not just slide shows but movie clips or anything that is visual. Being a visual learner this helps me the most and watching dialogue and seeing other settings would help me learn through contemporary art.

I have been to the Denver Art Museum, an art object I remember seeing was a red room with red walls and it was a dining area with wolves all around it. It stood out instantly to me however I did not understand it. All of the red was very bold and the setting was unique. I have never forgotten it because it was so different to me.
