I believe contemporary art does have a purpose, role and responsibility because many artists use art as a form to express serious issues that occur around the world. Issues that the artists themselves feel passionate about and feel that they can get a message across through their art. Art can be read in any language and country. It can be interpreted differently but its not like a written book that can only be read in the language it was written. For example, Doris Salcedo creates sculptures and installations to…..
Some of the subjects that artists work on today are about something they feel passionate about. For example, it could be about social issues that are happening recently or they could be about something that really affected them in their lives.
Other venues for exhibiting art can be at a house, park, old building and pretty much everywhere
Working alone is more of your own thoughts and manual work, when other people come along to help with the project its called a collaboration and its many people ideas and manual work to get it done.
Artist find inspiration everywhere and anywhere. Some people have to travel to get inspired and some people can get inspired by just sitting down and thinking.
Visual art has a message but everyone has its own interpretation and as for visual communication the message is there and its clear to everyone.
Artist all over the world can use anything they want to create their work, but usually artist use what they can afford or what is available to them depending on what part of the world they are in.
The most important skills an artist can have is the ability to get the message of his/her work across without having to explain the work.
The viewer decides what the work of art means. The artist can have a meaning to his/her work, but different people can interpret things differently.
The role of the artist is to produce as much work and be able to reach to his/her audience. To be able to get a message across without being present.
