It is not uncommon for this kind of mistrust to appear in other ways in the world, though Art’s inflatability is an extreme that illustrates the symbolic silence and misunderstanding of minorities and the unfamiliar. In my own ways, I’ve experienced this kind of discrimination or avoidance because of my blindness. Admittedly, I’ve never been mistreated in the same way that Art had to endure from antagonists, but I can certainly relate to Art’s difficulty in making friends. In my case, I’ve encountered people who are uncomfortable being around a blind person because they
McCubbin agreed in "Graffiti Is Art and a Thrill ... Not Just Vandalism", If art is put out in the open illegally, the thrill of going against the authorities in a creative and expressive way is amazing (McCubbin, Ashley). Art is about expressing thoughts into a story on a blank canvas. Graffiti is fun and expressive, therefore it should be appreciated as art. Graffiti can be extremely exciting, especially since the artist is left unknown to the public. There is something exhilarating to artists about having artwork out in the world without having people know who created it.
The only reason other people do not see it as art is because it is on public or private it property which makes it illegal and vandalism. If these people were doing these things on canvases people would applaud them and tell the how good they are doing and how wonderful their art is, but because the first thing they think of when they hear the word graffiti is dirty they think poorly of it. George C. Stowers states that “on aesthetic criteria graffiti has to be considered an art form.” it is an art form because people have made it that and by making it that and then denying it to the
The way our societies view other cultures and spread the perceptions regarding them is an unfair practice. It causes discrimination and judgment to foster in the mind of the coming generations and they in turn spread these views even more and thus strengthen those perceptions. While I viewed culture as a part of one’s identity or genetics, I feel like I was rather apathetic to reality. Pride is a fault common in all human beings. We simply refuse to admit our mistakes when proven wrong.
Art is really hard to explain, as what Picasso wrote,that we who are trying to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree,saying that we all have our own meanings, definitions and symbols. It doesn’t mean that if we have a different judgment to an art that doesn’t mean we don’t know how to manipulate ideas and conventions. Its because according to Clifford Geertz, people don’t stop talking about art simply because the importance of art enables us to talk about it and makes us gather more ideas making us realize that we all have different experiences and beliefs in life.. For example is the Yoruba art of the west Africa, Clifford stated that what would happen if the Yoruba society back then didn’t have concern of the thinness of
These expectations are constantly being advertised through, music, movies, and novels. They leave individuals who do not meet these ideals, feeling dissatisfied with their lives. Agape love might not be passionate or as deeply connected as Eros and Philic love would be, but it would be the best option to follow if our society wanted to live in a morally ideal world. When acting in the most moral of ways, one is inclusive to all individuals, allowing for a more intersectional community. As well as more selfless lifestyle, which allows one to put others before one’s own self.
While some people argue that art censorship is for the good of humanity, others contend that is is injustice and it takes away freedom of expression. Before researching the topic, I swayed heavily on one side; however, after going into depth in the topic and becoming educated in the topic, I lay on the fence. I realized the censorship of art will last just as long as it has been around, but there does need to be better ways to take down someone else’s creation. Art censorship is commonly given with the excuse of necessity. Some argue that pieces of artwork are able to support and enhance stereotypes.
Artists who have it should cherish it and share it with others, because not everyone has it. Sharing arts with others would bring prosperity to our society. Therefore, the art industry remains creatively due the gift motivation. Finally, from the Hyde’s The Gift, the market brings two sides for the artists. On the one hand, artists enforce to share art work in the market for living.
By this he means that ‘art’ does not want to be accessible only to a few “highly cultivated men” but instead also to ordinary people, like the people in the audience. By using words such as “cheerful freedom”, “open-heartedness” and “reality” in contrast with “sickens”, “selfishness” and “luxury” he creates the sense that the bad things happen because of the limitation of art and that the better things will come if only people learn to enjoy art. He then says that if art has a limit he “does not wish her to live” which is a strong exaggerated statement and was made to convince the audience of his argument. Morris relates “an honest artist” not sharing his work with “a rich man” who eats food in front of starving soldiers, this could also be interpreted as an exaggeration and might have been so by part of the audience, however the use of imagery would have added to his conviction. He ends his lecture on a powerful note, “I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few”, by using the repetition and relating art to education and freedom he heightens the importance of art in the eyes of the audience as a final technique to persuade
looks at how it ultimately affects society and targeted groups. There are a myriad of arguments for and against the allowance of hate speech. Some citing Democracy and the first amendment others stem from the fear of eroded freedoms of expression and have valid points, but ultimately, it corrodes society’s human rights and freedoms. The two fold issue being intolerance of the freedom of self-determination and the fact that some are born a color or culture and have no choice. Therefore, hate speech is anti-social and damaging to society as a whole.
