Art against racism and other catastrophes

It’s suggested that artists start an uncomfortable conversation with society in order to signal their street credentials as justice warriors. Let's ask instead why you enjoy making others uncomfortable. Aren't there more empathic ways to make a political statement?

Art Theory for Facebook
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, that’s visual language

I've been fascinated by technique and skill at a time when Benjamin Buchloh calls us to "de-skill" our drawing and painting, which loss of skill will hypothetically bring about a golden age of the simple minded. Unfortunately no downsizing or crippling of ability can by any miracle exceed a skilled practice. But these masterpieces are painted on cardboard… postmodernism's dead but it's too late to put the cat back in the box; irony and cynicism linger.

Miklos Legrady is a visual artist, scholar, anti-hero and protagonist who’s expecting trouble. He steps out of the art world’s blind spot, deconstructing myths and fictions. Emerging as a hybrid between technical wizard, ad buster, and poli-sci commentator, he moves through a world of political, social, and cultural intrigue, trends, and events. Legrady disrupts patterns and shrugs off the status quo, he sees art’s future at as aesthetics and imagination. Like the Energizer Bunny, Legrady just keeps on going and going.

Legrady is the Toronto Editor of Chicago’s New Art Examiner
