Art and Its Mediums

We are currently in a period where medium no longer matters, and “what is being communicated by the work?” has become the more apt question. If medium no longer matters, is the answer to draw on as many of them as possible? Does that depend on the message that is intended? Do we flaunt the skills we possess as artists or treat them simply as tools?

 

Here is an artist a few of our community were lucky enough to hear speak last semester, Abbass Akhavan and who I believe embodies the current movement of art.
