-Multidisciplinary practices, particularly less traditional fine art mediums ie sound, music, internet based works. These practices are :
a) A product of financial nesessity – Jack of all trades gets more temp jobs / lack of physical studio space / time constraints “what can I make/can be viewed on the bus?”
b) An indicator of how our cultural consumption is changing. Is it becoming more efficient (one stop shop style art events)? Is it this positive, negative or neutral? Discuss.
c) and always have been part of contemporary art, you’re not special.
d) All of the above
