How do you feel about the fact that 4chan users have been leaning to the right for years now and as such have developed a taste for fine art, all while dismissing modern art?
Do you think a resurgence of classicism would benefit the art world, which has by now deconstructed every possible aspect of art? Do you think there is more to explore within abstract concepts that are still popular today or are they the boring establishment that once was the classical artist?
Maybe some. I mean, some good artists today, especially ones that make primarily environments use very abstract shapes as a base for their stuff. But straight up piles of garbage that janitors accidentally throw away at museums. That need to fucking go.
I'm all for a resurgence though. Those who didn't put hard work into their skills should be at the bottom of the barrel, not making thousands, if not millions.
lol the right hated fine arts that didn't fit their agenda
franco, mussollini, hitler, but also stalin and mao destroyed countless art pieces
you really, really have no idea what you're talking about from the point you talk about 'modern art'
go back to /pol/ you fucking braindead cunt
did you even read op's post? he said that the right has a taste for fine art, which is a completely idiotic statement. art is something so big that it has nothing to do with your politics spectrum. right, left, totalitarians, anarchists, no one has a set frame of art they're identified with
besides the wrong idea of what 'modern art' is, or implying that classicism is the opposite to abstract concepts. does op even know that for example romanticists are neither abstract nor classicists. we can all agree that he should go back to /pol/
not so fast, anon. Those factors may have consolidated the process, but modern art was born in Europe around 1900, and lifted into dominance by the apparent bankruptcy of western tradition brought about by WWI. The American-Soviet divide over art was late in the game.
And even then, the cause was more on the soviet side, since they adopted socialist realism well before america took up abstraction.
Likewise, America didn't need to make it seem like "classical art" corresponded to Nazism. The nazis did that on their own.
btw, classical art doesn't mean what you think it means.
most artists everywhere in the developed world lean left, and have for a century or more.
It's not surprising, in America: pro-business & industry types consider art a waste of time or money (just as in the 19th c); the Right's religious wing considers art irrelevant, except in very specific contexts. The "real america" Palin-loving wing thinks art is an elite taste (and historically, they're correct).
There does seem to be an individualist wing of the american right where art does okay, but they're drowned out by the others.
>The right has a taste for fine art
>Which is a completely idiotic statement
Thinking innovation is superior to quality is left wing thought.
Thinking quality is superior to innovation is right wing though.
Guess which one /ic/ thinks
Guess which one /trash/... I mean modern art creators think.
That is what OP means, whether he's correct in his assumption of modern art or not.
