Hello
I am currently doing a project to figure what people think to be an art.
There are many form of art in modern days such as relational aesthetics, happenings, postinternet art. What do you guys think define art?

This is such an incredibly deep subject that I dont think theres any way to properly answer it even in a few sentences. One of my favourte quotations is however from Paul Rand: "Art is an idea that has found its perfect visual expression."

That definition would eliminate writing as art.

Yes I know, and music. Therefore I dont think its a good definition, a nice thought though.

For me art is a way of expressing the human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form.
