This survey is being sent to a range of differing creative and 
cultural practitioners:
Artists, Art historians, Theorists, Writers, Philosophers.

I have done this intentionally. I felt that contemporaneously, it is 
a given that conversation generated about art is not the exclusive 
province of artists, and as such, those that are likely to engage in 
thought and/or discussion about artwork should be addressed. The 
results of this survey will be archived and exist as an unmediated 
This is the first of several other surveys that I intend to send out, 
so if you would rather not be included in future mailings, or if you 
would like to propose people that you know would be interested, 
please contact me by email here: alm2129 at gmail.com

There are just a couple of questions here, and they are meant to be 
good conversation starters. Rather than ask questions trenched in 
theory or art history, I have tried to ask open questions that lead 
to a set of opinions about the state of art and art practice. They 
are hopefully flexible enough questions that they may be approached 
from a range of perspectives and levels of detail.
If you want to send longer comments to me, then by all means email 
me: alm2129 at gmail.com

So, here is the 3 question survey - simple questions trying to gather 
reactions to statements about art.
If you have 5 minutes to answer the questions I would be very grateful.

Many thanks in advance.
