Challenging the Ideas of Art

How do we view art? How do we define art? More importantly, how do we accept and challenge these ideas?

The Key of Dreams by Rene Magritte 1898-1967 private collection

From the movie Mona Lisa Smile and John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, how did we think about the ideas of arts? Let us compare it ideas presented in most art books such as Robert Cumming’s Eyewitness Companion to Art. How can we apply that in everyday life?

To my students, forgive the lateness of the post, there are some WordPress kinks that I had difficulties with.

May the Force be with you. #starwars So, I sent #gamerchef to the wrong space in Singapore to find the Juan Luna exhibit. He went to the National Museum instead of the National Gallery. Feeling kinda stupid right now. But this installation looks magical regardless. He said this even smells like flowers. I wish I could've been there too. #travel #singapore 4th anniversary with the big fat cat. #gamerchef says ish really heavy. Lol. Cat thinks he is a nice, warm bed. #cat #catsofinstagram 4th anniversary. The road to 5th unfolds... #gamerchef #anniversary #gifts Big basket! #sashimi #maki #japanese #dinner You may not always get what you want, but you may still get something awesome anyway. Looking forward to 2018 already. Dreaming of #seoul again. #art #residency
