WHAT THEY HECK IS ART? WELL……..MAYBE IT ISN’T LIKEABLE TO YOU,
BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT ISN’T ART
“I don’t care what you say, you can’t call that art….I don’t like this modern stuff.” The paintings, textile design and sculpture here are from the period called, “Russian Constructivism.” they were done from1916-1921. A hundred years ago.
People are very reluctant to make any solid statement about art….because it always seems that there are exceptions. But I think we can agree that if you think “modern art” (non-objective, abstract, etc.) is new you could be wrong. Artists are not interested in copying the past to make it marketable, that wouldn’t be too creative. So before you jump to the familiar or reject the odd, remember art is not there to make something match the couch…..that would be decoration.
