Contemporary art is art created by living artists. As such, it reflects the various, worldwide, and continuously changing challenges that shape our world. Many modern artists use their work to investigate personal or cultural identity, to criticise social and institutional frameworks, or even to attempt to reinvent art itself. They frequently raise tough or thought-provoking questions in the process, without providing simple answers. Curiosity, an open mind, and a willingness to engage in discourse and debate are the finest tools for approaching a work of contemporary art.
Artists have long questioned established forms, and assisting today's makers as they experiment with new, transdisciplinary ways of working is key to the Markian purpose. However, we are also devoted to providing audiences with deep and meaningful access to the ideas that animate those works. Our clients can obtain real-time insight into an artist's creative process through exhibitions and artist talks. This level of direct connection with contemporary art and artists is only feasible at Markian Brunswick’s showroom.
