the ever wider definition of art

 

Not fond of the new art jargon terms- “social practice” or “social engagement”. However an artists creative intention coming together as an art form that takes on new dimensions of expression is great by me. Axle Contemporary has been doing it (what ever it should be called) since it’s inception and has been some of our most popular exhibitions.http://www.axleart.com/#!projects/cctp. The projects do not take on a direct political stance, but building community, sharing humanity, curiousity, and creative activity just might be the most fundamental political thing there is.
