PARTICIPATORY ART AND THE EXPERIENCE ECONOMY

24th July. 6:00pm

WHEN : 24th July. 6:00pm
WHERE : QUT Art Museum

Just as Pop Art depicted the abundance of material products in a postwar consumer society, Participatory Art represents today’s experience economies. Participatory Art’s engagement with experience economies in which it aesthetically codifies experiences, is associated with neoliberal practices that commodify ‘authentic’ experiences. Participatory Art that contributes to populist entertainment modes and enhances the art museum experience in cultural tourist precincts also converges with economic requirements. While much Participatory Art mimics the commodification of experiential human relations via aesthetic codification, there are some practices that seek to foster experiences that transcend consumerist and aesthetic instrumentalisation. All participatory endeavours however remain framed within experiential and immaterial doctrines.

Dr Mark Pennings, Senior Lecturer, QUT presents this new research.
