For the first time in history, the artists (musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers) that challenge the art world and bring vitality and growth to the arts – are gone. Where did they go?
The arts are now consolidated into 6 corporate hands (see chart). That has led to creativity being marginalized, and generic safe art promoted. Want proof? Look around at what we are stuck with after these Big 6, the six mega conglomerates that control the arts, took control.
Being a musician, painter, and writer, I know this is true. Whether it’s innovations by myself, or talented friends, or other independents – doesn’t matter – they are marginalized, for the corporate art that favors the generic crowd pleaser. But it’s getting to the point where there is none of the vitality that some rebellion in the arts brings, and corporate art has grown stale.
That’s where the art revolution comes in. (See other posts)
