New Art's "Millennium Cocktail" - Today's Art Era, Defined! + Stuffed Jalapeños

New Art's "Millennium Cocktail"
The Current Era in Art

(Editorial by Jack A. Atkinson)

Ever since 2001 I have been wondering what the next phase, epoch, -ism or era of art the 21st century would reveal. The statement (below) best sums up the current direction, this new International mix of multi-faced artworks and exhibitions, seem to possess. 

New Art's "Millennium Cocktail"

Things are opening up in the art world, into a new convergence - a blurring of boundaries is occurring, between the different media: 2-D and 3-D art; design; film; performance; audio/music; dance; fashion; etc. - all shown in the same museum and art spaces! Art isn't just something to look at any more, it's something to experience. The works have become environmental, or there is a social aspect, or there is a sound aspect. Artists and audiences want to participate in this whole new mix, reinventing what art is and reinventing the art experience! 

(This statement was paraphrased from Jesse Dylan's interview with Jeffery Deitch. See August 8, ARTSnFOOD.)

Now we just need to name our new era! "Art21" is one possible name and Pluralism has been over-used, (meaning many styles at once). I personally don't think Pluralism is a good fit for the diversity of disciplines and hopefully the 21st Century will have plenty of surprises for us and new art forms in the next 87 years.

With the thought of "La Belle Epoque" in mind, I suggest  New Art's "Millennium Cocktail".
(note: Because this is also the first simultaneous, international, art movement, cocktail is specifically used because it is a word which is pronounced the same, with the same meaning in almost every language.)


Let the dialogue and
"Name Game" begin!
