Social media has had a huge impact on todays economic, political, and even art world. Just looking at the people I follow on my accounts, I have seen groups selling clothing, promoting clubs, and personal business (ie. barbershops). I believe that its great to have so much on a tiny screen but at the same time, how long is this market going to last?
personally, the social media platform lacks a sense of intimacy when dealing with art. you're not actually seeing the textured detail or , if a piece of work is large, you're not allowing yourself to be engulfed by the work. Going to these galleries there is always a sense of vulnerability you are letting yourself feel along with a sense of adventure and curiosity into another persons mind/thoughts.
