In the last days of November 2016 I attended the Symposium/Artist Residency Dysfunctionalities of Contemporary Art 2, which was organized by the Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts (E.KA.TE.).
During the Symposium/Artist Residency I wanted to examine the input and the results that artists get when they show their art work to the public through an art-fair, internet or even a closed circle. Is it worth our time and money?
In the video, you can follow the workshop of the Art decision tree and I will explain how you can visualize your choices and the results through a model by giving values to [money/time], [status], [social capital] and [our inspiration] input and expected results.
The idea came about by following these two Massive Open Online Courses.
As a result I have come to the conclusion that I show my art work to further expand on my curiosity and inspiration and I see the importance of using [status] and [social capital]. By making use of the art decision tree tool I also noticed that other artists could also make a quicker analysis of their situation and chose to see if the method (art-fair, closed circle exhibition….) is going to bring me the right results.
The Symposium/Artist Residency Dysfunctionalities of Contemporary Art 2, was organized by the Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts (E.KA.TE.) and took place at the 30th of November until 4th of December 2016, by the support of Cultural Services of Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture, the Department of Fine Arts of the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) and the International Association of Arts (IAA).
