Outsider Artists

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Brooke N…

Brooke N.Turning the Art World Inside Out – Part 1 of 5:

Minnie, I know you probably can’t see this on the computer. Remind me and we’ll watch it. Rayn, you might want to start watching with the Japanese artists at 8:58 min. or so to save your battery. Gregg, I like the part in Venice about halfway through where the art critics talk about contemporary art being contrived, not spontaneous, not urgent. I think you’re able to use your training in service to being spontaneous and urgent. Worth 14 minutes of my life

Rayn: Very interesting. Thanx for sharing. 🙂

Liberty Rant: “Politics is the art of making your selfish desires seem like the national interest.” – Thomas Sowell
