• re: Winter Topic: Art and Social Issues

    Response from our artist interview of Koshal Hamal: 

    Maddie Blake: Given that we now live in an interconnected, global world, do you think the social role of art has changed recently? Has it become more or less important?

    Koshal Hamal:  Yes. Since we are dealing with a global world, the social role of art has also changed. Art has become a key medium of communication which mainly deals with the questioning of global themes, rather than creating a specific pure identity of a particular culture or nation. Thus, in order to be more identified in one circle, the role of contemporary art has become more important to unite the globe.
