Should Art Be Democratic?

More than ever before, we have the opportunity not only to produce art and get it seen but also to participate in debates around art and culture. But is it a good thing?


More than ever before, we have the opportunity not only to produce art and get it seen but also to participate in debates around art and culture. From letters pages, to comment boards at museums and galleries, to websites soliciting opinion and public votes on arts prizes and artistic production, to the advent of sites such as Saatchi’s Your Gallery the capability to ‘add your bit’ has never had such unprecedented platform. But is this a good thing? Is the current policy of widening participation good for the arts? Or should the arts maintain a degree of exclusivity?

Speakers: John Carey, author of What Good Are The Arts?; Tino Sehgal, whose work is on show at the ICA; Jaime Stapleton, School of Law, Birkbeck; Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner; artist Carey Young, whose work was shown in the recent Hayward exhibition How to Improve the World.
Chair: Dave Beech, member of art collective Freee.
