Art Decade

The strange case of the Baroness
By Abel Cervantes

The history of art that we have been taught is boring. The names that make it up
are generally great figures to admire. Similarly, the pieces of the canon of art
stand out for an unattainable beauty or a wonderful halo to which viewers should
appreciate with absolute respect and amazement. However, history is boring not

in books, magazines, museums and art fairs.

Can a scientific image be a work of art?

By Sybaris Collection

The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) has incorporated into its collection the first photograph of a black hole, which is 55 million light years from our planet. The image is the result of about two years of research in which a series of telescopes located in different parts of the world were aligned to become a kind of Earth-sized telescope.

By Mariel Vega

Jeff Koons is an undeniable figure, regardless of whether we agree with that statement or not. His work is practically inseparable from the shiny image he was forged of himself as an artist. Born January 21, 1955, in York, Pennsylvania, Koons studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA at the Art Institute of Maryland in Baltimore.

Why to collect art??

By Andrea Cuevas

Why people collect art? Actually is pretty similar to the question of why people make art. The most basic and common answer for that is because human beings has the imperative necessity to express themselves, and we assume it as an unquestionable truth. It is hard to find someone who thinks a person makes art or becomes an artist for making money. On the other hand, when we think in art collectors, the first image to come to our mind is that of a billionaire that buys art as a form to get a tax deduction or money laundering.
