Arts and Culture Magazine

This new form of arts and culture magazine is a conglomeration of arts and culture waiting just for you, so get ready and dive in now.

This isn’t quite like what most people are used to reading about. Someone has put the world-wide KitchenAid on the high setting. Arts and culture are constantly swirling, mixing, and changing at a seemingly increasing rate. Mixtures of human achievements and much more are recipes that concerns the entire world. The outcomes of these articles might be a meal no one has ever tried. And, if something is new, so should be the approaches to dissecting it. Therefore articles here aim to throw out the old recipes of simply analyzing form and try to analyze culture. Call this new process mad, but it’s debatable. This avant-garde approach to art is called visual culture. There has been much debate around it’s usefulness, but Culture Hog stands by it. The articles inside this arts and culture magazine use visual culture to provide readers with exciting new Contemporary Art.

“The phenomenon of visual culture is constantly changing in response to our evolving world contexts, making it a difficult concept to define conclusively. From a postmodern perspective, visual culture refers to visual imagery and artifacts that enable people to comprehend and deconstruct the social, political, aesthetic and cultural world they inhabit (Aguirre, 2004). Visual culture is also defined as observing the world and the people within it through learned behaviour that unites new technologies, media and social practice.”

-William John Thomas Mitchell

The art here is contemporary and new for two reasons. The articles are all masters of change. The first criteria for these articles is that they relate to a constantly changing culture that is contemporary. The articles will change in content and style according to their relationship with arts and culture. Though, more exciting: no longer is the driver seat frozen directly five feet from the Mona Lisa at the tired old Louvre. Since 1945 the role of the viewer is no longer to view, but to partake. So, secondly this arts and culture magazine wants readers to walk up and dip their hands in the oil that is Mona Lisa’s crooked and cracking smile. This Contemporary Art magazine believes that Contemporary Art must directly interact with culture and have a participating audience.
A Mindful Arts and Culture Magazine

Culture plays a vital role in this new science of art in contemporary times. There’s a new opportunity for everyone to study a broad range of cultures through the telescope of art. “…Art accommodates an extensive variety of cultural experiences, actions and aesthetic happenings” (Aguirre 257). Recent trends of art have a close relationship and visual commentary of the cultures around them. Contemporary Art is the all-seeing eye in the sky and it can see and experience all the cultures of the world. “To conceive art as a cultural system and as an agent of experience obliges us to also redraw the ties between the arts and the social structure” (Aguirre 261). This new form of artistic expression is addressing bigger broader themes and must work closely with the cultures of those themes. This arts and culture magazine aims to be the first scientific institute for art… but with mad scientist. Culture Hog aims to foster Contemporary Art and its strong relationship between these mad artists and culture including the viewer.

Readers of this arts and culture magazine are part of a crazed process of art. Contemporary art is the meat and cheese of the sandwich. “The aesthetic experience unites the artist and the spectator […] since it converts the artist as an interpreter of the experiences which surround him and the spectator as the recreation of the experience of the artist” (Aguirre 259). To make a visual culture sandwich three layers are required. The first is the artist. The second is the art object or event. The third is the viewer. Culture Hog loves to serve up these arts and culture sliders. This is because it believes, “the response to art should make us talk of ourselves, rediscover ourselves step by step, [and] to weave our identity anew” (Aguirre 264). This arts and culture magazine feeds its readers Contemporary Art because their is a space in it for conversation and learning. This Contemporary Art magazine leaves a space open for the viewer to connect and participate as it is a vital aspect of Contemporary Art.

Conclusion

It’s time to jump in to that dirty culture and interactive art that we all are craving. Culture Hog is ready to roll up its sleeves and dig in. An arts and culture magazine has work to do. And the magazine has set out to do just that. These articles are on culture, descriptions of artists, and places for viewers to discuss. Contemporary Art needs help though! These artists have specifically created spaces for their viewers and readers of such publications to complete the art process. Therefore this Contemporary Art magazine is not the only one who’s going to need to get a little dirty. Culture Hog is not shy or afraid to be the first, though. A visual culture magazine aught to stand by its position that this form of critique is appropriate. This is the place for art; here are articles about culture as well as viewers, the two things that make it Contemporary Art.
