The Spectre

In the world of art of 2017 and beyond, perhaps the twilight period of the contemporary art era, sustainability can equal success – the vast majority of artists subsist on options and opportunities between stardom and starvation carved out from consolidating the resources of their available privilege, engaging in artist-initiated projects, as academic labor, as art-world labor and more. Artist-run initiatives and extra-studio practices are not the antidote to the forces of neoliberal capitalism corrupting the arts, but as long as they exist, there are still possibilities for art as something beyond fetishized objects of capital. Without activity among all classes in the interests of art for art’s sake, art’s value is moot.
