I will be the first to admit, I am one of “those” people. A person who views all white paintings as lesser art, or not art at all. I found this Vox video explaining the complexity of these pieces and some of their history. The lack of subjectivity, at least to me, always feels cheap, as if the artist was just taking an easy day off. In the video, a curator from the Whitney in NYC brings up the point a white painting is a lot of work since it has no symbols for us to immediately recognize. While I still am not a fan of these types of paintings, I think the video is a fun watch to open up our eyes to different aspects of art that aren’t as obviously art in the general public’s perspective.
