While reading several artistic publications, I often found myself confused by the overwhelming language used by the art critics. I had the feeling that the (sometimes) sterile conceptualism, the specific terms, the complex semiotic of meanings was building up barriers, not really allowing the “unfamiliar” visitors to approach the lively and exciting art world.
After my degree in Visual Arts and Theatre obtained in Venice, I moved to Shanghai, where the idea for Artitudes came out. I wanted to create a blog that proposes fresh contents in an engaging way, structured as a personal diary and understandable even if you don’t have a degree in Philosophy of Contemporary Art.
Artitudes is the humble result of this need, halfway between an academic research and a conversation you would have with your mate.
All articles find their starting point in contemporary art but, from there, they move towards several topics involving society, anthropology, music, psychology.
In the end, Contemporary Art is nothing but the concrete reflection of men’s needs, hopes, crisis, questions in the NOW of our history.
Enjoy and don’t forget to leave a comment! This wants to be the chance for a conversation, not a monologue
