Contemporary Art and Culture.

So, working with the Association of Contemporary Art and Culture.

Sounds very grand and all, but what exactly does that mean?

A definition of the term “Culture” refers to, ‘The behaviours and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic or age group’.

A definition of the term “Art” refers to the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination’.

And the definition of “Contemporary” is ‘living or occurring at the same time’.

So, ‘Contemporary Art and Culture’ refers to

‘The creative and imaginative expression or application of current human behaviours and beliefs.”

So, culture is created by the body of people to which is applies.

Meaning, being a human, currently, my personal behaviours and beliefs are a contributory factor to the shaping of contemporary culture.

As are yours.


So, art is creative human expression.

Creativity is defined as, the tendency to generate or recognise ideas.

So, by definition, self-expression is art.

It seems logical to find the definition of an artist as,‘any person who expresses oneself truly.’
