I Could Do That: The Art Assignment
For those that need a response to “well, I could have done that? Why is that on a wall?” or when you’re questioning “why is this considered art?”
So you look at a work of art and think to yourself, I could have done that. And maybe you really could have, but the issue here is more complex than that – why didn’t you? Why did the artist? And why does it have an audience? We delve into it by looking at work by artists like Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Piet Mondrian, and Cy Twombly, among others. You might find it’s not quite as simple as you think.
