Art the Question of Cultural Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



However, on the other hand there is a concern that this theory remains as a force in art theory and that this suggests that it does have some value. Some critics are equally critical of the new pluralistic and non-hierarchical theories of art, and see these theories as "flattening out" or reducing cultural differences and achievement in a negative sense. They assert that the pluralistic and egalitarian view of art has a hidden danger it that it reduce standards and in fact threatens the very status of art. While one cannot agree with the biases and divisions that Cultural Hierarchy permits, there the possibility that this theory does hold some value. It is suggested that if the negative aspect of the theory of Cultural Hierarchy could be reduced or ameliorated, there may still be a place for it in art theory- albeit in a much altered way. The danger that all art could be reduced to a 'sameness' or lose aspects such as quality and uniqueness is also troubling and should be taken into account.
