Contemporary Art - Public Attitudes

Public Attitudes

Contemporary art can sometimes seem at odds with a public that does not feel that art and its institutions share its values. In Britain, in the 1990s, contemporary art became a part of popular culture, with artists becoming stars, but this did not lead to a hoped-for "cultural utopia". Some critics like Julian Spalding and Donald Kuspit have suggested that skepticism, even rejection, is a legitimate and reasonable response to much contemporary art.

Famous quotes containing the words public and/or attitudes:

    It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.
    Edmund Burke (1729–1797)

    I think what everybody calls a miracle is just common sense.... You can look at the attitudes when people come in. That’s why they call it a miracle. These are black kids and they’re not supposed to know the things they know and achieve the way they are achieving.
    Marva Nettles Collins (b. 1936)
