We are all interconnected and complicit in this structure in various disconnected ways, but artists are largely not a part of the conversations that happen in the 'art world'. Is the museum contemporary? And is it not imagination that empowers us as artists? Can we use this to create a more sustainable and inclusive definition of art? Instead of allowing for elitist institutions and people to co-opt and limit our ideas? We do not need museums, they need us!
