The art in time of the Greeks

Art in ancient Greece was a very important historical event for Western culture, as its foundations for architecture and design are still used today. His artistic era is divided into 6 eras (Geometric, Orientalizing, Archaic, Severe, Classical and Hellenistic)

In Greece were born the two greatest exponents of philosophy, Plato and Aristotle. Plato thought that the only real thing in this world were ideas, which were in an intangible world (unattainable) for the human being, then, as Greek art was based on imitation (Mimesis), the result would be a simple imitation without value, a falsehood. While Aristotle thought that art was accompanied by beauty, for him, something beautiful and artistic could function as a medicine to repair the ailments of the soul.

Contemporary Art

One of the beginnings of contemporary art is presented when Andy Warhol presents a box of "bright box" as an art piece in an exhibition, this is where the products or elements of daily life begin to be protagonists in works of art. Arthur Danto, realizes that this new type of art can not be seen with the same eyes with which classic art was seen, since with those criteria there would be many unsolved questions.

He developed 2 concepts; the aboutness and embodiment. In the aboutness is to explain or tell the context of the work, Qupe is what we are seeing here? What is the main theme of this? While embodiment is the process of landing the conceptual idea to the physical world, it is the use of materials to give life to the idea presented by the artist.

Curious Fact: The first time that Warhol exhibited his works in a gallery was in 1962, in the Ferus Gallery (Los Angeles). It was here that he exhibited his Campbell soup canvases, in which he represented one by one the 32 types of Campbell soup. In this first exhibition he sold everything for a total value of 1,000 dollars.

Contemporary Art With these tools Danto explains that it would be a bit easier to understand contemporary art, because this is not enough just to see it with your eyes, you have to go inside the work of art, you have to feel it, see what it is transmitting to us , go beyond what our eyes can show us

Later another postulate of a lady named Susan Sontag appeared, which explains that contemporary art should not be judged, it should not look for content inside it, we should not try to understand it, the only thing that is needed is to contemplate it, it is to stay With what your eyes see, see the works in an aesthetic way and only then can you enjoy contemporary art.
