Lovely Lovely: Art Documentary by Matthew Collings

Mature Content and Language

This is another episode in the art documentary series, This is Modern Art, by Matthew Collings.  In this episode, Collings explores the place of beauty in modern art.  How does beauty fit into art that tries to shock?  What is the purpose of beauty in art?  Doesn’t most conceptual art try to dispense with beauty entirely?  Is beauty something we need for comfort?  Does it have something to say in art or is it just a distraction?
