    Link: I-A-B Poll o` the Day: When is Art ``Art?`` - Take a look at Yazmany Arboleda`s art exhibit in the post up above. By definition, is it ``art`` or is he up to something?

    My definition of art (seriously, this is from my mind) Is any thought or expression that is shown out or represented threw something else, or even in something else. Like painting, sculptures, exhibits, even speeches and plays

    It`d be art if he.. did something to the pictures. From what I can see in the video, he just took pictures of them and added captions like those random pictures with captions that people like to post on here. It`s not art, and it`s bad non-art.

    Art is art when someone thinks it`s beautiful.

    its art if theres a thought put behind the piece and not just done for no reason as well as the creator must intend for it to be art. it fits the criteria so it is art

    Art is any expressionary work that makes the viewer think in an abstract fashion. If it doesn`t make you think, it had better be aesthetically pleasing. (In my opinion).

    Art is any expression of a person/thing that does not causes bodily harm to another person/thing.

    I don`t have a problem with what this dude did. But if any of you remember the guy, I think he was Dutch, that chained a dog up and did not feed him, that is not art. Killing animals or people who do not volunteer are just grabbing for attention. That is not art though, I don`t care how you define art.

    I don`t consider this art, not because it is shocking or anything, it just looks more like a giant scrapbook. It doesn`t really require any talent.

    I don`t think art is art unless it looks good, makes sense, or you really put time into it. The artist who signed a urinal is an attention whore, the artist who made the 1 way mirror bathroom in the middle of a public place did something that you can call art. Its interesting and funny, and took a lot of time and effort. A painter who spends a lot of time painting something, or even just abstractly splashing paint made something that you can call cart if it looks nice enough to hang on your wall.
    "Expressing your thoughts and emotions" is what you do on your lonely little emo blog, its not something you do using pink canvas and the blood of goat on a tile floor.

    Yes, but art is an EXPRESSION of one`s self, it DOES NOT matter if it looks good or makes sense to you, but merely is an EXPRESSION of the person jeez.

    my definition of art cant be easily explained in the 1000 chars we are allowed here but i will say that nothing that is sold by its creator is art in my opinion. i take that back, anything that someone creates then attempts to sell successfuly or not is not art. lot of pooty "artists" our ther who cant sell ther masterpiece as a coat wrack. cant leave the ones who fail at non-art out.

    I guess this is the same as violence in video games. Just because the artist depict people getting assasinated ( or w/e ) it wont incitate others to commit those crimes.

    Are we a free country or not?

    I would have liked to have seen the exhibit in person--it seems fascinating.

    The artist makes a valid point about censorship in a place that prides itself on artistic expression and on the free exchange of ideas.

    Trying to determine what art is/isn`t is like trying to define "honor" or some other intangible concept. You may as well try to catch the wind (as Donovan would say).

    Art is forever something you cannot justify with labels. It`s an expression of everything and nothing at the same time. Most people won`t classify art as "art" unless it`s pretty and colorful, which is retarded. It`s also fear and disgust and disorder, and like this exhibit, it`s also about reality and "what-ifs". This is just another form of art, there`s no reason to get huffy about it.

    Akappy got it I think, but I`d like to make an amendment; Art is something that leaves you thinking or feeling something you wouldn`t have if you hadn`t experienced it.

    I am an artist and as much as some `art` annoys, disgusts or just plain bores me <g> it is art.

    Now whether it is good art or not. . guess we first have to define `good`.

    be well
    peace by peace!

    In my view, art is does not justify something being immoral, stupid, or cruel. However, that also means that immoral, stupid, and cruel things can be art.

    Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. And no, I don`t mean this guy:
