Do Ideas Contaminate the Art Experience? (2014)

Christopher Hollins

About this exposition

This essay questions whether-or-not artists always destroyed the art experience by imposing learned understanding over what they do. I am considering the idea that art history has led us to believe that established work practices allowed artists to create an experience we call art, when, with hindsight, we can now see that they actually work to suppress the sensation. My premise here is that any Research Based Artistic Practice would have to be set up to describe art as a sensation that only enters our thoughts when we find ourselves at a loss to understand what confronts us.
