Open Enrollment | The “I” and the “We”

Art Literature Review

The article Open Enrollment by Andrea Fraser, found on the blog art21 shows the perspective of a fine arts graduate student, having completed her studies and now entering the ¨real world¨. My favorite excerpt questions,  

"Is the problem the old conundrum of whether art is necessary or not? Are we as artists superfluous because art is only valuable as long as it can be commodified, either as a good that will appreciate in value, or as bait for tourists and wealthy patrons?"
