Tokyo-based artist James Howard creates an immersive large-scale installation for which the contents of scams, spam, unregulated websites, stock images, and poorly software-translated texts are obsessively cut out and recombined into digital “base material”.

About

In the fourth and final iteration of the Great Debate About Art exhibition series, artist James Howard examines the decline of the arts and its surrender to commodity fetishism.

The arts are a part of humanities, which is something that commodity fetishism and its increasingly corporatized environment is an adversary.

 

"The new job of art is to sit on the wall and get more expensive," as explained by the late art critic Robert Hughes, is a direct relation to this new post-post modern development in the arts.
