Art as aesthetic humanity criteria is at stake. The academic references are theories that should parameterize past and present, however, society vulgarly probes the legitimacy of the current market with the innocuous specialization given aimlessly on social medias.


This exordium presents multiple interpretations, not only concerning the artistic "making" but also the current conception of aesthetics, the art market and even the artists.


Art as an object of business should not be news flash, although it is still a fad defining patronage as avaricious; galleries and artists in conflict inside a distancing market. Living of art is almost heresy for the ongoing validators of art requires login and password, defining mundanely what is and what is not. In the necessary distance to comprehend the present aesthetics content, there is a confusion of tastes and subjects, eloquently delivered to the winds of mass communication.


It is worth inviting for a debate of ideas and analysis about the market of art, about current preconceptions towards artists and their pieces, about the collectors' market, about contemporary critiques, about the struggle to make art for the market, about living of art.


a contemporary appraisal in development.
