Contemporary art is a challenge for many people to figure out. How do we comprehend and "read" a piece of artwork that seems to resist immediate interpretation? How do we figure out what is excellent in technique when those artistic techniques are not always evident?
If these questions peak your interest, come out to the Art Colony tomorrow evening for an enlightening conversation with Charles Matson Lume, Professor of Art at the University of Wisconsin-Stout and, in 2013, recipient of the University's Outstanding Senior Researcher award. Charlie will provide participants with a better foundation to understand the complex viewing of contemporary art. He will weave together aestheticians David Hume’s "Of the Standard of Taste" (1757) and Arthur Danto’s "The Artworld" (1964,) addressing questions such as, "Is there set criteria to create an "ideal art critic?" Or, "Are their broader theories with which to understand the art world that move beyond our own perceptions?" Participants will see art through new aesthetic lenses.
