    I like Ruth Evans. Some experimental work there from everyone.

    -btw, is CA not a global art movement itself? I'd say we are

    I dig their aims and topics, but some artists works are very close to crap.
    Some are truly interesting though. Those guys need a lead artist to make this actually big soon. I think it will swamp the rest of the globe sooner or later too, coz their sphere of interest is yet unexhausted and will become more and more up to date I'd say




    oh, and what Kian said :

    Going strictly on what's provided in the link you posted I don't sense a coherent thread that connects the various artists and their pieces listed outside of a willingness to associate themselves with each other.

    There isn't really anything that jumps out as being new in the visual vocabulary of the artists. Not to say it's poor art, but there's nothing particularly revolutionary in the approaches of the various people who have their works posted.

    The manifesto comes across as highly derivative of the dada manifesto and seems both muddled and contrived in nature and execution. I don't understand what makes Thaumaturgism the "legitimate child" of Dadaism and Surrealism. For "a new and vital Art Movement for the 21st Century" it sure seems to revel in attaching itself to successful movements of the past century. Many popular forms of art in the past 100 years (and earlier) have dwelled on the inherent mystery of existence and reflection of the subconscious mind, so what exactly makes this movement unique?

    Perhaps I'm just a jaded observer, but laying claim to being an art movement is to beg to be critically analyzed. I think it's great when artists get together and share techniques and ideas, but being part of a community of artists doesn't necessarily mean you're a movement.

    It would be nice if no one with under 5 posts could start a lounge thread, especially about pretentious art movements.

    On the bright side, I saw a couple of pieces that weren't garbage. Looking at art is better than looking at spam.

    I don't see how this is an art movement. What I do see, is a collection of interesting works of art, but the connection between them (as the manifesto) eludes me.

    it seems "art movement" is being used by people today as something of a marketing strategy? Just my opinion here

    yeah that's not humble at all, be together, have similar ideas, but let the tides of time decide on the name of whatever trend.

    I tend to respect artists more who operate outside of a defined structure...labels cause problems...except for DOOM™ That is. hehehe

    Manifestos are sooo 1924.


    As was said, individually there is some quite interesting work, but I dont see the connection, nor do I see anything new or revolutionary in this work.
    Personally, I think that with postmodernism and the return of the figure in the 80's there is hardly any room left for a new movement to be formed that wouldnt be just a branch of postmodernism or modernism.

    arguably Stuckism. arguably. Personally, I think that one's a sham too
