Art Papers deals impressively well with contemporary art – we firmly believe that the most fascinating and relevant art in the world is that which is being created right now, and clearly so do they.
Can you imagine a country without art? It is perhaps the single unifying thing across all cultures, something inherently within all of us – the desire to paint, draw, sculpt and create. Since the first caveman tentatively daubed a crude representation of an animal on the walls of his stoney home, we have been a race that loves expression through art. A nation without art would be one of dreary grey conformity, of boredom and acceptance. Art challenges things, perceptions, creates spaces for talking about issues. It is entirely possible to live a life without art, without such expression, but to do so would be an absurdly hollow thing.
Contemporary art is perhaps the most important branch of art. Artistic work is fascinating at least in part because of the way that it folds that which is culturally relevant at the time into it. As such, contemporary art has a limited frame in which it is relevant to us, before passing into becoming something of a historical artefact, a piece of culture from a time and a place. To adopt an unrelated marketing cry; “Contemporary Art, get it whilst it’s hot!” NB
