At the end of November 2016 I attended the Symposium/Artist Residency Dysfunctionalities of Contemporary Art 2, 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 artwork to the public -art-fairs, internet or a closed circle of friends. Is it worth the time and money?
In the video, you can follow the workshop of the Art decision tree and see 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 concluded that I show my artwork to 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 make a quicker analysis of their own situation.
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, with 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).
