  • Catalogue Essay

    "The traditional artist myth up to this point has always been that artists (or at least those who get historicized) have been seen as extraordinary people who create extraordinary things and are, in turn, supposed to be seen as amazing markers of any given generation. That myth has fundamentally changed today, though. Now anyone who uploads a YouTube video can be just as culturally relevant as someone showing work at a blue-chip gallery—or indeed, they’re probably even more so. Our relationship with art objects (actually, with all objects) is fundamentally changing."
