What is Art?

Jeff Koons

“What art is able to do, it’s about acceptance. People talk about aesthetics and all of these different things, but what art really is is a vehicle of acceptance. First you accept yourself and eventually the highest state, is the acceptance of others.”

Wolfgang Laib

“The essence of all your experience is coming into an artwork, it is as simple as that and also as complicated as that.”

Hillary Llyod

“There’s this idea about art that you should understand it, or that you should appreciate it, or that, you know, you should “get it”, and all of those other things and I don’t think its like that at all. I don’t know, I don’t think I know what the works are saying. Can you answer it and I think I’ll see if I agree”
