MY AGGREGATION OF THEMES AND META-THEMES OF THE BIENNIAL OFFICIAL AND INDEPENDENTS. BY STEVEN BENSON

1.The boundaries between reality and art/”art”; how aware are the curators of this issue?Some more than others!

2. How much is commercial marketing and how much aesthetic meaning?

3.Who decides what goes in the Independents and Official exhibitions?

4. As individual citizens we can be ACTIVE in deciding these questions for ourselves

……………………………………………………………………………………

I made an artwork in the “Bluecoat” Official exhibition;there was a row of coathangers, perhaps put there as a jokey self-reflective comment on the installations in the building: what is art? I sat by them and curated them and announced, to my friends, the coathangers and I were an installation: I was in the cupboard(closet) with the coathangers
