DEFINING ART

Art lacks a satifactory definition;
it is generally easier to describe it as the way something is done - rather than what it is
FINE ART


'Fine art is created for purely aesthetic expression,
communication or contemplation'



'A term used to distinguish artworks considered to have rare and refined quality, often considered - by those who make such judgements - to be more worthy of preservation and study than 'popular' or 'low' art'



'The power of art is the power of unsettling surprise.. beyond the delivery of beauty...disruption of the banal...an alternative kind of vision; a dramatised kind of seeing...we get shocked'

Where does this leave 'new art'?



Graphic Design
Illustration
Television
Radio
Cinema
Video games
The Internet (viral work)
Social Media (Apps?)


Can we consider these disciplines as 'art'?

MILTON GLASER
'Art is terribly important as a survival mechanism in
any culture...it is the most powerful instrument for survival
...at its fullest capacity [it] makes us attentive'
valuable? worthwhile? attentive making? Art?
PIERO FRANCESCA
