Luxury Goods London - Art in 50 Words - Free Art Festivals - Since MMVIII
We invite you to be part of a 5 night long program of
multi-disciplined arts in our festival discussing the illusion of art
as a luxury good. From outsider art to conceptual art and so on, all
creative practices have a value invested in them that often exceeds
the artwork's actual commercial value. This luxury is what makes the
process or end result something we might call an illusion But how far
can we consider art as ‘illusion’? Is there illusion from artists and
as people in the creative process of making work? Does it add value?
Is it necessary in art-making? Is artistic expression an illusion?
We would like you to consider how your practice is affected by the
illusion that the items you create are considered luxury goods.
