clever / theme
Capable of crawling into nooks and crannies, revealing nuanced perspectives, drawing unexpected conclusions. Cleverness is the art of exploiting subtle differences, discrepancies, and distortions for the purpose of disclosing an unfamiliar point of view.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
