Conceptual Artist's Thoughts on Art and Other Subjects

next    back      back to contents

"In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art"
--Sol LeWitt

"Creativity isn't the monopoly of artists."
Joseph Beuys

"Actual works of art are little more than historical curiosities."
Joseph Kosuth

"If people say the bed's a joke or a confidence trick I'd say they're not very interested in art"
Tracey Emin
