Art as Money

The Special Exhibition, EXPO 2016: Art and Language will display arguments about the current status of art, science, philosophy, politics, and religion using various art mediums and substrates. The aim of Art and Language is to challenge the changing conversation behind why people are consuming art anymore. Some of the topics considered at this EXPO include the contradiction of minimalism and challenging museum culture.

Newcity notes how The Art Institute of Chicago went for spending 50 million dollars to attain Malevich’s “Painterly Realism of a Football Player” (1915). To some, including Newcity, this seems questionable.
