SIGNS IN OPEN SPACE
Art architecture advertising graffiti
I would like to speak about the variety of
artistic messages. If we put art into a further context from
artistic options, the question arise, what we want to see
still as art. Museums and galleries, art akademies and art
fairs, curators and art critics, are selecting works of
artists. What one has to see as art changes, because the art
changes continuously, and new criteria of the judgement arise.
With the look onto artistic practices in publicspaces, we find
artistic aspects in advertising, design, architecture, and
also in some illegal practice of graffiti.
With pictures I would like to show
architecture fare away from the international style. Design
creates different forms for different needs. A style of the
time can not be gone out of. Art in the public space, art at
the building obeys other laws and hits on a much broader
public, than art in exhibitions. Advertising is sometimes very
creative or ironic. Graffiti shows problems of the society
immediately and with emotions.
I will show 35 images,
seven to each field.
