We chose the Minimalism movement for our presentation, Minimalism influenced simplicity in art. Minimalists were against abstract expressionism, they didn't like that new art favored "cool" work over dramatic work. Art influences society by putting experiences into physical space, art can maybe change opinions of debates and controversial topics. I personally like Minimalism, the simple shapes feel satisfying to me. I like how they use geometry and logic with art, makes you feel like the artist is smarter than others. I remember seeing minimalist art when I was younger and I thought it looked cool, I finally get to know what it was.
Tony Smith was the creator of Die (1962), he made a piece that was comparable to the human body. He wanted the cube to be completely balanced in between being a "monument", and a mere "object". If it was smaller, it would be a mere "object", and if it was bigger, it would be a "monument". I think artists can change a lot of bias in politics and such, they can show a lot of emotion through their art and convince people to change their minds. Well, now, anyone with a computer can make perfect art, you have way more tools and tricks that you can do. Before you couldn't undo with a command, you couldn't copy and paste stuff. I think that this advances art, people can make better art easier now so art will evolve. Art has now less meaning to it but there is more to explore...
