Contemporary art cartoon – a builders’ skip full of traditional paintings
A builders’ skip in an art gallery, full of traditional oil paintings as though they are being thrown away as part of a gallery refurbishment.
The skip is in fact an artist’s installation or sculpture. I hope.
The cartoon could be about art galleries trying to modernise and rebrand in order to attract a new generation of visitors.
Or it could be about the current (2020) trend for some traditional art to be judged incompatible with modern values as part of the debate about being woke.
Cartoon drawn: 2019
