OBJECT ART  —   WHAT IS NEW OBJECT ART?


What is Object art?* By Aav Object artist and panel maker


A - If the non-object or post-object artwork (including contextual art) can after all be considered as an object (entity) — as it is defined in art law and in the market economy — named with a title and distinct from a context (institution, artworld)


B - If an atomic and self-referential object-painting (object-as-object) can return today in the form of a panel (non-art) that is considered as an Object, while the art is in maintaining** the Object as being an Object

C - Then Object art is a new sort of post-object art (second-order contextualism)

objectart
* An Object is post post-object. Before comes after.

** The maintenance of a thing as being the thing it is involves not only a way of exhibiting it but also other curatorial practices such as conservation, restoration, documentation and much more, in Object art as in non-object art. The difference is that in Object art the context of maintenance is the art's medium
