A closer look at Van Gogh's working method, techniques and the materials used in his artwork. His brushwork.
Alyssa Piserchia's insight:
Vincent Van Gogh uses his own techniques when creating his artwork. This scoop provides art students with an understanding of what some of the techniques are used within art and the reasons why they are used.
Jonathan Jones: Exhibiting Pac-Man and Tetris alongside Picasso and Van Gogh will mean game over for any real understanding of art...
There needs to be a word for the overly serious and reverent praise of digital games by individuals or institutions who are almost certainly too old, too intellectual and too dignified to really be playing at this stuff. Gamecrashing? Gamebollocks? Spiellustfaken?
I first encountered this trope of the inappropriate elder's interest in the newest games a few years ago at a philosophy conference in Oxford University (I was an interloper in those hallowed groves). An aesthetician – a philosopher who specialises in aesthetics – gave a talk on his research into games. He defended them as serious works of art. The art of games, he argued, if I understood him right, lies in their interactive dimension and liberation of shared authorship. But he never answered the question: what was a professor doing playing all these games?
Now the Museum of Modern Art in New York is up to the same manouevre. MoMA has announced that it is to collect and exhibit games from Pong to Minecraft. So, the same museum that owns such great works of art as Ma Jolie by Picasso, Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh and Vir Heroicus Sublimis by Barnett Newman is also to own SimCity, Portal and Dwarf Fortress.
MoMA claims these games belong in its collection because they are art. Really? Is that so?..
Question 1. What do you believe the author means by the statement 'Exhibiting Pac-Man and Tetris alongside Picasso and Van Gogh will mean game over for any real understanding of art'? Do you agree with the authors opinion?
Question 2. In what way do video games relate to art?
