ART OR BALONEY?

Posted: October 10, 2006 in All and Sundry, Musings

*above is the title of the short performance art piece, which creative writing student pamila chi wrote for johnnypanic’s class.  the piece explores the many definitions of what art should be and questions the prevalent assumptions/assertions/definitions imposed on art such as that “art has/must have function.” not devoid of humor, the piece also tries to problematize the binary hierarchies of high art and low art that are often considered as essential boundaries to define what art is and what it is not. is art a discursive form? we find out from the characters above.
