Defining Artistic Value

Tuesday, 20 September 2016, 5.30 PM, Nádor 15, Room 103


Does artistic value exist? If so, in what is it? Can it be defined? In this paper I examine several answers to the latter questions. One answer that it is whatever we discover when we evaluate an artwork as art. Another is the composite view: artistic value is a composite of aesthetic value, a type of cognitive value, ethical value, interpretation-centered value, art historical value, etc. This view claims that artistic value is constituted by several independently defined values including those just mentioned. Finally there is the buck passing theory: V is an artistic value of an art work = V is a value of the work as a K, where K is one of the arts. (Lopes Beyond Art, 102).

This paper will critically examine each of these views.
