Subject Art: MAP-ing a new path to an inclusive culture

Russian artist Anna Leporskyre Three Figure (1932-1934) became one of the most iconic unintentional distortions of classic work in the history of the art world when it was vandalized by a security guard at the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center in Yekaterinburg, Russia in February. The year criminal is said to have used a ballpoint pen to draw attention to two faceless objects in the painting. An artistic masterpiece that cost approximately 250,000 rubles (£ 2,468; $ 3,345) to recover and which was in debt to a multi-functional museum, cost an investigation and the suspension of the guard – an event that the administration believes was “some kind of recklessness” and ‘A foolish mistake’. The painting was vandalized because the guard was “disturbed” on the first day of his job. However, the incident also underlines the question — is art made for everyone’s enjoyment? Or can it be explained in different ways?

Experts believe that art case study is a matter of subjectivity. The Leporskare three-figure is an example compared to the unintentional distortion of classic work, such as the infamous restoration of the infamous Echo Homo (see man) by Cecilia Gimenez in Spain. Gimenez created the face of Jesus Christ – painted by Elias Garcia Martinez in 1930 – like a monkey. The 83-year-old amateur artist had nothing but good intentions when he drew attention to a growing fresco of Jesus Christ painted on the walls of the Mercy Church sanctuary in the small Spanish town of Borja in early 2012. Spanish artist Pablo Picasso once said, “Everyone wants to understand art. Why not try to understand the song of birds? Why does one love without trying to understand the night, the flowers, everything around? But when it comes to drawing, people need to understand … those who try to explain pictures usually bark at the wrong tree. ”

Since the overall level of industry engagement among the country’s population is obviously low, the most notable barriers are the lack of a suitable platform for entry, as well as the low entry points that can target a different audience rather than a gap. Understandably, Nupur Dalmia (soon to be The Arch Foundation), curator-director of Vadodara-based Gallery Arc, said: Commercial — when works of art are bought, and academics, for example, in a museum, “he said, quoting Naman Ahuja, an art historian and professor at JNU: Creative expression is a part of our being, and its absence would be the most unnatural thing. “Because of its subjective nature, how one viewer consumes, interprets, and appreciates part of one work may differ from another.” The form that has changed collectively through different periods and movements. I admire the different artists and their work because of the politics behind the context in which they were created and what they present. The rise of technology has made the industry more democratic, ” Artist Oshin Shiva 7

Shiva expresses his vision through city murals, digital art, canvas paintings and comic strips. She specializes in expressionism and incorporates Dreamscape, Monster, Mutant and brightly colored visuals, all deeply rooted in her feminine and curious identity and Dalit Tamil tradition. Well, if the art is understood by the public, it is probably not in the form of gallery spaces or in the form of visits and the time allotted for its appreciation. “For decades now, through art residency and funded projects, it has taken the form of place-specific, research-led work in villages, satellite towns, deserts and coastal areas. You can’t ignore it; You won’t see it because it is in public spaces both rural and urban. Everyone understands this but this understanding takes many forms, ”said Delhi-based Monica Jain, curator-director of Art Centrics Space. So, could it be about something better? “In order for art to hold on to our psyche, it must challenge our perception, it must respond, good, bad, traumatic, soothing — anything. Because of this, artists and audiences can have a lot of explanations in their minds, if not always, come together, “said Jain.

This is not the first time that paintings have been vandalized in Russia. In 2019, a man was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for vandalizing a 19th-century painting by Evan the Terrible in Moscow’s state-run Tretyakov Gallery. The same work was attacked in 1913 by a mentally ill man who stabbed it three times. However, living in a time when both pencils and pixels are rooted in the collective adoption of valuable, future art in today’s day and age – both from a technological as well as an aesthetic perspective. Mumbai-based artist Jitish Kallat said, “Art is always a combination of serious exploration and play ৃত indeed, some examples illustrate how art creates new possibilities and will always continue — complex and brilliant বাধ্য forcing us to think beyond our imagination.

In 2021, for example, Beeple’s digital art piece Everydays: The First 5000 Days introduced the world to a changing art landscape. US-based Mike Winkelman, also known as Bipal, has been drawing one every day for the past 13 and a half years. Starting with a pen and paper, computer software such as Cinema 4D, the jpeg file collage was offered as a single lot cell and fetched $ 69.3 million (approximately `503 crore). Worldwide, the most talked about art duct-tape has been sold at বাস 120,000-worth (`85,35,360) walls by artist Maurizio Catalan at the Art Basel in Miami Beach, Florida. This work of art was a shining example of how the meaning and significance of objects change depending on the context. And sometimes it can be disrespectful or whimsical. The work of the comedian title went viral on social media because most people failed to understand how a perishable fruit can make money or it is an ‘invaluable’ art form for the elite who do not know the price of a collar. But for most people art is open to interpretation, no particular meaning can ever be said to be true.

Dalmia says, “The industry is necessarily open to interpretation because it is thematic, and will affect each person individually, even slightly. I think of seeing a work of art as much like a unique and personal conversation that is driven entirely by references separate from memory, personal aesthetics, and even mood. “But does art always have a meaning? Since some unique pieces are open to interpretation, The viewer may refer to a piece as a reflection of his or her own life or attach it in some way.However, there is still time to explain any form or element. , Richard Hamilton and John Latham used innovative technology in their 20th century paintings.

A new approach to interpreting these paintings has led viewers to use technological elements such as binary and directional audio to create 3D sound, a scent release system to enhance the scent, and pioneering touchless haptics technology to create impressions of tactile sensations. The audience wore a biometric measuring device to record the emotional impact of the activity. In India, the Museum of Art and Photography (MAP), Bangalore, which will open later this year, has launched a range of art-centric activities in digital incarnation, creating art. Included. MAP and Accenture Labs collaborated to introduce renowned artist MF Hossain, India’s first conversational digital personality. Someone might ask Hussein’s digital twin a question about his early life, family or career to get an imitative response from him. A 3D hologram will also be coming soon to the physical location of the museum.

“Art can mean different things to different people. In some ways it reflects who we were and who we want to be — it’s a landscape of our imagination. For decades, art has been considered a luxury reserved for the elite or the intelligentsia. As a new-age entity, MAP aims to change the perception that art is enjoyed, valued and understood by all, regardless of their age, social status, caste or religion. Integrated enough for people and inspiring enough for those who know, ”said Kamini Sahni, Director, MAP, Bangalore, whose vision is to take art to the heart of the community and build bridges between them in various art forms and audiences. Celebrates the power of bringing people together. The three-day digital program, concert, performance, panel discussion, film discussion, educational workshop and presentation held in December 2021.
