What is Art?

What is art? That is a simple question with a very complicated answer. For this week’s lecture, I will use my old lecture notes and give it a new twist. Let us examine initial definitions of art found everywhere and critique it, as well as examine objects that are accepted as art. Here is the link to the presentation:

What is Art? Lecture

Also, let us take another aspect into art perspectives using my Prezi presentation on the subject:

Introductory Notes in Art and Aesthetics

I am looking forward to reading the journal entries. After this week’s lecture, we are watching The Artist. Excited? I know I am. Take this film as a challenge my dear student!

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
