Ron O’Donnell-Art is Shit

Portrait of Ron O’Donnell

What is art and should we fund it? Have you ever thought: “What the f**k is that? People pay money for that? A two-year old could do it!”.  We’re talking art with Ron O’Donnell (Edinburgh Napier University).

Who decides what is valuable, or creative? Do you need to be educated to understand it? Would you despair if a great artwork was destroyed? Would you give a shit if all contemporary art disappeared tomorrow? If art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observation, why is so much of it baffling and aloof?
