Art Should…

Art should be powerful
Art should offer transcendence
Art should make us see the world differently
Art should provide other worlds
Art should make us excited
Art should offer us extraordinary spectacles
Art should embrace it’s inherent artifice
Art should offer escape
Art should reflect the human condition
Art should learn from its past
Art should exist in the present
Art should be beautifully made
Art should open conversations
Art should be revelatory
Art should reinvent it’s foundations
Art should be emotional
Art should ignore its limitations
Art should reinvent clichés
Art should be daring
Art should not be fearful
Art should be for everyone
Art should not be boring
Art should be enjoyable
Art should not be practical
Art should be alchemy
Art should not be a science
Art should be bought
Art should not be made to sell
Art should be clever
Art should not be academic
