Quote:
A happening is a performance, event, or situation meant to be considered art, usually as performance art. The term was first used by Allan Kaprow during the 1950s to describe a range of art-related event or multiple events
.



It's a hangover from the 50/60s art scene.

Interesting, not that I know much about art, but never heard that term before, thanks.

Re: [Merged] Is it Art?

There are always haters. The art world is the art world and a mystery to many..I don't actually think there is a Banksy as such. I think it's a consortium of artists that want to eschew the norms of the 'art world' but the art world has it's own way of dealing with rebels and Banksy is slowly being dragged back into the fold.

Re: [Merged] Is it Art?

I don't see it as hating, it's interesting to read an interpretation as to what may or may not have happened. as the article says no matter how it was done, if the goal was getting ppl to talk about it, then that has been accomplished

he idea of Banksy being one person, a group, or a person that hands the title to the next Banksy is part of the fun I think, I'm not sure if it's like a superhero, or Spartacus

A celebrated painting by British artist David Hockney has been sold at Christie's in New York for just over $90m (70m) - an auction record for a work by a living artist.

Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) had been forecast to fetch $80m.

It sold following a 10-minute battle between two rival bidders via telephone, after the price passed $70m.

A favourite artist of mine..

A new Banksy artwork has appeared at Southampton General Hospital.

The largely monochrome painting, which is one square metre, was hung in collaboration with the hospital's managers in a foyer near the emergency department.
