I was thinking again about my friend the curator Sarat Maharaj, born in
South Africa but of Indian ancestors. He works both at Goldsmiths College
in London and in Sweden, in Lund.
We discussed once the paradox where Western (European and North American)
Art was now a kind of universal paradigm to which all other cultures in the
world related to.
The Museums, the Biennals, the Art Galleries, the shows, all reproducing a
kind of European Rennaisance atmosphere, where princes and cardinals
sponsored Art and artists painting them as semigods or angels or apostles.
Should the Art in other parts of the world (South America, India, China,
Japan, Australia, etc, etc) florish in other terms, in another frames?

your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always
long to return.
— Leonardo da Vinci
