The social revolution in Art

November 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here is an interesting article I found about a now famous phenomenon: the social revolution. It more precisely focuses on its impact on art: http://www.artnews.com/2011/06/01/the-social-revolution/

I always find it fascinating how many new opportunities for arts are invented on the web every day thanks to the bold initiative of some artists or organizations. To be perfectly honest, it also makes me a little dizzy. As democratic, and clever, and cheap as these solutions are, the whole social revolution looks like a gigantic “terra incognita” moving forward so fast that you do not have the time to invent a new solution and that this solution is already disappearing into a new one. How long was Myspace effective? How long will Facebook last? It feels like it is harder and harder for artists and art organizations to stay “in the trend,” which also means that it is harder to master communication and to build a name in a long-term view. Indeed, multiplicity can become chaotic, and it does even more when you add the speed factor to it. So it is a tricky time for artists: easy to become known and born, but easy to vanish quickly…
