Liam Gillick: Contemporary art becomes another historical style

“Art in its new contemporary form is about as relevant as some arcane forms of rock music would have seemed to a punk. The idea of teaching it without the ability to truly dedicate time to the super-subjective potential of any artist now seems laughable and impossible. Contemporary art becomes another historical style with a specific history for study – alongside Rococo and Fauvism.” Liam Gillick and J.J. Charlesworth, “Is This the End of Contemporary Art As We Know It?“, in Art Review, 29 September 2020
