Today, another lesson from Iceland.
It’s almost 2017. Now that art is no longer in the galleries but in the world, shouldn’t art tourism be outside of the galleries but in the light. In Iceland this month, it is sunset all day long. The palettte is exquisite. The “galleries” sell handcrafts. The light goes on.
We do well to remember that “art” is the indigenous handcraft of Europe, taken up by the bourgeois class and extended. Now that the bourgeois class has Facebook, we can all move on, back to the light.
Even a highway with potholes is worth a gallery visit now.
