2021 was a banner year for art lovers, with the borders between fine arts and everything else growing more porous. There were historic examples that showed us how much adventure can be found in history–and then some contemporary happenings made it seem like we’re on track to experience an even greater burst of creativity soon!
Best Representation of 2021 Artful Music
Below are some examples of artful music in the year 2021:
1-The Velvet Underground
For Todd Haynes’s, his impressive documentary about the Velvet Underground tackled more than just a job to show how this band and their music could not be contained in one little box. They made creative decisions that still boggle our minds today because they were singular from day 1; there’s no other way you would describe something as unique-sounding or look into your own eyes while listening with complete concentration like these guys did back then!
2-Don & Moki Cherry
The partnership of Don Cherry and Moki created a formidable life-and art masterpiece. It was the subject of a 500 page book from their extensive artwork in painting, textiles or more that combined both perspectives into one beautiful work.
3-Sun Ra Poetry Books
The intergalactic jazz visionary Sun Ra is one of the most worthy cultural figures in any field. His life and work deserve to beknown more fully, especially considering how little attention he’s received thus far!
