As long as I can feel the emotion that the artist put in it then yeah I like it.

thats quite the "modern" art there.

but I really dislike how clean or simple some of the thing need to be and grey (black or white) colors.. its annoying.
Using colors "right" or give them a "meaning" can much more help and much else.

This is the type of modern art I've come to love. Styles vary but the depth is there.

I enjoy modern art of all forms, as long as there is a message and some direction conveyed. But there is a problem with the amount of effort put into art nowadays, I'll agree. You just have to look deep into the community to find inspiring pieces.

I like art a little but there is no need for the government be funding it ...choosing what does and does not deserve public funds. Trump is finally putting the axe to it and it is about time. With rich Hollywood celebrities, crowdfunding, etc. even the misplaced justification for it is long gone.

I find that art is easier to make now so there's a lot more junk to wade through.

See this type of stuff I could like. What I don't like is what I call lazy modern art: paint or create a sculpture of something provocative, throw some paint spatter or political ramblings on it and call it a day.

I kind of agree with this to a point. I still think the Government should issue scholarships and such for the arts but allow the selections of who gets the scholarships to be solely in the hands of the teachers. Although art is subjective, a teacher can tell the difference between someone with an innate talent, someone with potential and someone just in it for the moment.

I can't argue this fact at all. I wish I could but can't.

I know just what you mean. For me, it's all about what brings a depth of realism, to my cousin it's all about emotion and only emotion. It could look like a bunch of splatters and he could explain the emotions behind it to me. I need to see the distinguishable image to appreciate it.

It's also cheaper so risks are less risky.
I don't see these as a bad thing, it makes the art scene more accessible.
The bad part of it is that it lends it's self to mass production for the sake of quantity, music is a good example.

It's a practice I've always hated witnessing but it's progress and progress can't be denied. It's why the movie/tv industry travels in cookie cutter genres; if a movie is a hit you'll see everyone trying to reproduce the formula (which almost never works, although you'll sometimes find one diamond in the sack of coal). Sometimes, though, that one piece of art you find that truly grabs you can be worth wading through all the art you can't stand. I've found some of my favorites that way.

Yes and no. Although, as a whole, I'm fond of modern art, I often have a particular aversion for modernist architecture and décor. My reasons are purely aesthetic. I tend to think it looks too sterile.

Honestly, it's a hit-or-miss for me. When I toured the Vatican, they had a small modern art exhibit set up and it just wasn't for me. They had a separate Rembrandt exhibit, and that on top of seeing all the old masterpieces really didn't help present the newer stuff in a way that made me interested.
