Given the renewed interest in the ideas and practices of cultural democracy and their potential to address longstanding issues of cultural policy, it seems clear that, as Owen Kelly, a key figure from the community arts movement, has recently argued, arguments about cultural democracy still resonate. But for Arts Council England, they are not unproblematic. Thu, 20 Sep 2018 22:01:10 +0000

Is Contemporary Art The Kale Of The Art World?
It is no better-tasting and no healthier than many other vegetables. It is but one vegetable. The same is true of contemporary art.

So it is time for museums to return to their true mission: […] Thu, 20 Sep 2018 20:32:20 +0000
