We can’t predict what the world will look like in a decade. The future is quite uncertain; however, one thing is sure it’ll be different and unlike what we expect.
When thinking about the future, considering the future of art is inevitable for every art enthusiast. The future of art will solely depend on global, social, and political conditions.
Research shows that human-caused climate change will be unavoidable by 2040, making it a major issue at the center of art and life in 20 years.
Future artists will deal with the post-human and post-Anthropocene – artificial intelligence, human colonies in space, and potential doom.
With all the expectations and thoughts regarding where art is headed and what the future holds for art? There’s no guarantee about the future of art, but a few factors will be more prominent in the future. Here are those factors. Read on to learn more.
Art Will Reflect Diversity
As environmentalism, border politics, and migration come into sharp focus, the identity politics evident in art around the #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter movements will intensify. Art will become more diverse, and it may not appear like art in the way we expect it to.
The new rise of a variety of untraditional and generic art such as LGBT, feminist, and ‘other’ art will be embraced by institutions. It’s predicted diverse art will become more diversified in the coming years.
Art Will Get Experimental
In the future, when we’ve grown tired of our lives broadcasted to the world and our privacy has all but vanished, obscurity may be more appealing than fame.
Instead of millions of likes and follows, we will be famished for authenticity and connection. As a result, rather than being solitary, art could become more collective and experiential.
Art Will Reflect Activism
Activism-art campaigns expose entrenched power dynamics and corrupt money in the art sector, as well as emerging trends toward responsibility.
During World War One, a group of artists known as the Dada began staging disruptive, experimental interventions to protest the war’s senseless brutality. In the early twentieth century, the Dada movement was considered the most extreme avant-garde movement, followed by the Fluxus artists in the 1960s, who also aimed to revolutionize creative and social perspectives through shock and senselessness.
Artists like Paul McCarthy and Robert Mapplethorpe continue to carry on the legacy of these activist movements in their work.
