Global Art, where to begin? As new technologies emerge at an ever increasing rate, travel and migration become easier and cheaper, the world seems to be becoming a much smaller place and the many, many different countries history, culture, art , ideologies, politics and economies are merging and influencing us all as never before. This blogsite is just one example of the new ‘global mediums’ available to us, once I have made my posts they will then be available virtually anywhere in the world.
For my assignment I have created a new Category ‘Globalisation’ , the postings here are:-
- ‘Global Art’ – This introduction
- ‘Globalisation and Cultural Identity’ an exhibition looking and discussing the effects of globalistaion on cultural identies and traditional art practices.
- ‘McDonalds – the Global Invasion’ a collection of Youtube clips showing how universal this brand has become.
- ‘Janet Lilo – Visual Artist’ – a look at Janet Lio’s work using video, youtube and the internet as her mediums
For further interest and reference there are links within my posts and also a new Link section ‘Globalisation and Art’.
Lastly, as this medium a public forum I have sent a facebook message to all my ‘friends’ for them to read these postings and leave a comment. It will be interesting to see how many comments I get and if it leads to new ideas and directions. The link to facebook is also found in the ‘Globalisation and Art’ Links section.
