The Arts

When it comes to art, the first thing that comes to mind is that art is a form of expression of creative abilities, but after reading the brochures on “knowledge and the arts” and “taste for creators”, I became to the idea that knowledge in art is a way of understanding or having an opinion about a work of art in the connoisseur. Knowledge in art exists, through this knowledge, it can be implicit, particularly because, there is no right or wrong way to interpret a work of art, like everything you think is beautiful, for others it can be the opposite.

“Art is something we do, a verb. Art is an expression of our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires, but it is even more personal than that: it’s about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of personality.” (Philosophy Now)

The taste for the arts depends on the taste of the people, some people may refer to art as a piece of decoration or others simply do not like it. I consider that each person has their point of view and concept for art.

About the video of “The Girl from Ipanema”, which is a clear example of how research can lead us to its main concept to have a clearer idea of its originality. For some people without knowing the story behind it, they just said they didn’t like it or they didn’t enjoy it. but on the other hand, in the video of “The Girl from Ipanema”, a person asked and inquired more to understand in detail and in my opinion that helped that her opinion was different from others.
