If you think Vincent Van Gogh painted the Mona Lisa it’s cool. You can be on this page or in a museum or at the library reading about art or whatever else.
Everyone has a place in art learning and you don’t have to be a connoisseur to start. Start with what you have and yourself and go on from there.
Seriously. Pardon my French but this kind of elitist and exclusive bs that makes u feel like u have to know everything before even trying to engage with the material, and that makes u feel like there is only one type of good opinion has kept me from engaging with culture so long.
Also to art students & art history students: it’s fine if you don’t know x and y that are super cool/famous/canonic whatever. You don’t have to feel bad or fake it or try and make excuses as to why you don’t know. Just say it. You’re still good & know shit & have shit to say!
Honestly I started answering simply “no” when asked about stuff I didn’t know in 3rd yr of uni and ppl were legit shocked? I’m not gonna collect for the sake of it or lie & try to diminish myself in convo bc I don’t have the “correct” references. Guess what. Still smart.

1) The military tribunal theory is taking off. As much as I would like that, I don’t think so. I think these men have done their jobs and Trump no longer needs them. These men won their battles. Behind closed doors, these men purged the enemies of We the People. We won. https://t.co/OvpimINcqj
New Q: Ryan (age 48) announced retirement on 11 Apr so he could "spend more time with his children." It appears his CoS, Burks, was involved in #SpyGate coup attempt vs @POTUS.

WOW, interesting! - A Hawker 800XP business jet (reg M-VITO), reportedly owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, landed at Wilson Airport (WIL, HKNW), Nairobi, Kenya three days ago.
