Description

In 1888, Vincent Van Gogh cut off the lower part of his ear, which at that time was not considered art. Shortly after, he painted Self-Portrait with Bandaged Air and Pipe, which is considered one of the most significant works of art he ever made. In 1971, less than 100 years later, performance artist Chris Burden shot himself, which is a work of art. Any documentation of the shooting is not considered art. Using notable works of art from the last 100 years of creative history, this lecture will examine the ways in which art forms and creativity have changed and how these changes in concept, execution, technology, collaboration, and the rise of social media affect artists working today.
