What is this artwork doing here? It doesn’t belong here.
Sometimes, while visiting an artist’s retrospective exhibition in a museum, you catch yourself questioning the motivation behind featuring a specific artwork. It might not be particularly good from a technical, esthetical, or artistic perspective. Yet, it made its way to a museum.
Maybe the artwork is featured so the audience understands the progress the artist has made?
Looking back at work you’ve done in the past, it’s absolutely fine to feel slightly ashamed. That means you’ve grown.
