The 2012 Biennial takes a look at what’s new in art today. What do you think makes contemporary art new and exciting?
When its is personal and reflective of the self, its curiosities and obsessions. When vision and reality collide and the result is some kind of outta left field, rule breaking, ground shaking presentation or reaffirmation of a funda-meta, home grown, deep cuts, true-thats, you already know, word-is-bond -ish-ness.
I think contemporary art is exciting because it is different from all other mediums.

It looks upsetting and scary. I think it smells musty with beautiful flowers that could kill you when you touch them. Theres a fireplace that hasn't been lit in fifty years but still has ashes in it. The kitchen is spotless but everything in the cabinets is rotten. Theres a sad old woman that hasn't come out of her room in a long time that lives there. She smokes heavily. Theres one tiny television in the lining room with no service. and the one phone there is is so old it doesn't work anymore.
My grandmas house in Pencillivainia (spelled wrong), because everything is green there
The colors make me sad. It looks cold. I can smell the flowers.
