Art school could be a really good networking opportunity though.

I always feel bad for the teachers who clearly really understand art (which is definitely not all of the teachers, but a lot of them) but have to suck it up and find a way to flatter students who are clearly never going to have the first clue but have the money. You must have to either have a really good sense of humor or be some kind of saint to stay sane as a professor at an art school.

These days homosexuality and sex in general are a bit less taboo so there's more racism and sexualized violence in ads because that still tends to make people uncomfortable.
represtentations of gender in advertising
06/13/13, 09:16

Advertising isn't about making you have conscious, positive associations about the product or brand, it's about making you remember it and the best way to o that is to evoke a strong emotional reaction while the product or brand logo is on screen. And the best way to provoke a strong emotional reaction is to break taboos, which is why they used to hide vulvas in advertisements for women's products and penises in advertisements for men's, especially back in the 50s and 60s (although I've seen it done really overtly as recently as a decade ago, I don't really pay much attention anymore) - homosexuality was more taboo back then, so putting images of the genitals o the gender you were marketing to would make them uncomfortable, ad that would theoretically make them more likely to notice your brand or product on the shelf later on.

There's a photo of one of the classic, famous examples in this article but there are a ton of them, and it's not much of a challenge to spot them even today:

http://www.americanscientist.org/bookshelf/pub/really-useful-sex-in-advertising-and-more---


As a general rule of thumb, if something in a print ad has been photoshopped to be a bit too large or a bit too small then it is supposed to catch your eye, and that means there's a pretty good chance it also loos like a penis.

The best art is art that communicates meaning without deliberation. Not necessarily without intent, but without deliberation.
Goldsmiths: But Is It Art? (Episode 1 - Part 1)

I was definitely trained (and I think having some lessons can be helpful if you have the right teacher and approach it as "learn by ear and then apply theory to understand what you earned rather than starting from theory) butI always made a point to kind of segregate my formal training from what I did ersonally. I can write scores and I can sight read for a few instruments (although that's receding) but I can't sight read for any ofthe instruments I'm actually serious about or good at. Incollege I had private composition lessons for years (and did quite well at it according to them) but I rarely if ever compose on an instrument, and when I do it's never a primary one. As a guitarist, if I feel myself getting to technical I switch to a tuning I've never used before and just stick to that for a few years until I start getting too good at it. The interesting thing is, I've found if I do that when I go back to a tuning I AM familiar with my approach to playing has changed so much that it's almost like I have to relearn the old tuning and it keeps things from getting stale.

As far as the whole "but what does it MEEEAAAN?" obsession in the modern art world, I've got to give credit to one of my high school writing teachers who was a stanch postmodernist for really driving home the idea that the artist's intentions are completely secondary and they should basically shut up and let other people find meaning in it. I don't totally buy it, but I think it's a much better approach than planning the meaning of a piece in detail, since that usually makes the actual piece itself become kind of an afterthought and that's not a way to make art that has any real depth to it.

MY takeaway from spending a ot of time with art students back in college and sitting in on some high level classes at art schools an taking my share of art courses and occasionally working at a gallery when they need someone to fill in, is that the "art world" is largely about learning how to convince people who don't really know much about art (because a really high percentage of the people who buy art don't have a clue - a lot of them hire companies to choose it for them, since they're really just looking for a decoration that won't lose value so they can sell it in a few years when they decide to change the color scheme of their summer home - there are exceptions but in general there is absolutely no correlation between understanding art and having the money to buy it), and that the emphasis on the "meaning" or intent of pieces is tied up with the fact that the piece really is secondary, and what an artist who wants to actually be commercially successful needs to do is create and sell a myth. It's show business, and that wouldn't even necessarily be bad if they would just admit it,at least to themselves. Which is why I'm completely OK with the woman in this who just steals stuff.

It's weird because I know what patchouli smells like and I distinctly remember what Stinkor smelled like (I never had him but a friend did)and they're pretty different smells. I never would have guessed.

Anyhow, most of the teachers seem pretty good. I think someone who had something to say could get a lot out of this place, but most people won't. So like art school (and a whole lot of other types of higher education) in general.

Also, painters who put text in their paintings are so highly suspect it's not even funny. I mean, painters in general are kind o suspect but if you put text in there you'd better be able to deliver.

"Art for me is very much about what I can get away with."

I am completely OK with that sentiment.

Unless you're legitimately mentally ill or autistic and get discovered as some kind of outsider artist, you're pretty much obligated to spend a good amount of time honing your craft before you can credibly abandon technique, although I do think that's a good end goal - overly technical art or music or whatever is almost aways utterly vacuous in my opinion; c.f. shred guitar. I count excessive focus on concept as overly technical, too.

Growing as an artist is a process of absorbing more than you need and then abandoning what you don't need. You can't abandon what you never had to begin with.

I live near RISD, so I could buy art of this quality for about $100 in half a dozen coffee shops within walking distance of my apartment. I hope these kids get a lot of experience networking and writing grant proposals, because if they expect to go anywhere on strength of their work itself they're doomed.

Technique ISN'T necessarily important in art, but it should be important in art SCHOOL.

Art school an art are only very tenuously related to one another.

I've seen a lot of those old ads in magazines at the record store I worked at for years, but the spanking coffee ad was a new one to me.

Other than that one, though, they could have found a lot worse than what they showed.

Or wild turkeys. Turkeys are complete pricks.


I've met the turkeys described in this story and they are serious business:

They came back this year. Same place, same turkeys.
