art theories

There are many different art theories.
Ritual theory
Formalist theory
Imitation theory
Expression theory
Cognitive theory
Post-modern theory
Feminist theory

A theory is more than a definition. A theory is a framework. A theory helps things to make sense. Many modern artworks challenge us to figure out why, on any theory, they would count as art. Theories guide us in what we value, guide us in what we dislike. They inform our comprehension and introduce new generations to our culture.
