Week Fifty Two

Recession + Art

Posted in Art news, general interest by sarahbakerhansen on 5 March 2009

There’s been a lot of ink on how the recession can be good for the arts as of late, most notably this article in the New York Times.

This short piece, from the March 9 issue of New York Magazine, tells another side of the story.

Vote below. Share your thoughts, if you want, in the “other” category.

    I hope this is a time for artists to produce work that makes a viable, lasting comment; I agree with some ideas presented that lately (and even sometimes locally, too), art has been constructed and presented for immediate reaction rather than long-term consideration. Now might be the time to say something that will hold water for longer than opening night, in both the art itself and the presentation of it.
