Changes in society and information delivery affect the pace and rhythms of daily living, these changes also affect art production. Art appreciation is linked with these changes and clues to understanding contemporary art are found in societal changes and the ways we receive information.
Developed from the critical debate with gallery visitor Jeremy Wilson which took place in Folkestone , this discussion will present ideas on new ways to view and understand contemporary art. The expectation that art should speak for itself may no longer be relevant for contemporary art viewing. Join us and join in the debate.
