Can art transcend paradigms?
Kelly Huang writes about globalization and artistic impression. In her inaugural post, she asks:
- With the global economic downturn, should we expect to see less market-endorsed artists and more experimental or previously overlooked work to enter into international exhibitions?
- Will there ever be comfort in a truly multiplicitous diversity? As Hou argued during the panel, “all places want to be part of the global map, but they don’t want to necessarily be part of a monoculture.” Is that the path on which globalization has put us?
- Can art transcend the paradigms set by the political and market structures that permeate the art world?
