I think we ran out of things to articulate........

These are some wonderfully articulated and yet totally dated thoughts.

On a different tack. Perhaps works of artworks date with the generation that produced them and with the audience that was associated with them? Perhaps some works are more strongly associated in this way and some less so?

There is a strong displacement effect in contemporary art. The market is structure on a highly pointed elite model. There is so little room at the top than no one can stand on top of it for long.

Many 'established' artists are established in critical terms but not financially. Art investors and collectors have to spot rising artists whilst they are still cheap. The assumption is always made by curators, historians and critics that contemporary art continues, like a unstoppable lava-like ooze, which it is their job to segment and present in narrative themes.

I sometimes think we could do with exploring other images and metaphors of creativity. The 'modern' image is of a creative source gurgling into the open from hidden depths. Datedness, derivativeness etc. is being downstream and dependent on someone or something else's originality and genius.

An alternative image might be the hydrological cycle. Rain on a hillside collects to become something distinct and visible from something less distinct and less visible. If the stream didn't form in one place it would form in another close by. You can take streams as origins but this is somewhat arbitrary. Why not clouds or oceans etc. Perhaps there is no entropy or loss in art and culture. Perhaps you can see it as a closed system, circulating within itself. Perhaps it's all just grist to the mill.

Your posts are always so lucid and thoughtful, Robert. They always demand a response even when I think you are psychologizing or off target or IMHO just plain wrong. If ever I don't respond you can put it down to and be grateful for the fact that I'm kinda dumb and think very slowly.......which is what I'll now do.........

I've often noticed that my ears are much more open than my eyes. I can enjoy new music as interesting noise but I resist some art with all my critical faculties.

I suspect this is because, however marginalised I might be, I still feel I have certain vested interests in the course of contemporary art. Several times I've been on the losing side in art history. I've seen 'my side' quashed and consigned to the bin of history. Art history is written by the victors as much as any other kind of history.

It is hard to identify with the dated because it suggests our own transitory nature. The ideology of the contemporary is that somehow we can always transcend this nature by throwing another generation at the problem...

Sorry, I cannot answer yet...Duchamp boring!!! I´m still shocked...moreover...I think minimalism is fun only if you don´t get bored by Duchamp...in fact, art is fun thank´s to Duchamp!!!
Comment by mike hinc on July 11, 2009 at 23:12
That's funny 48073...I think Minimalism in general and Judd's work in particular is totally brown rice wholefood of the carrot flapjack variety and straight from Rob's pet shop.
