Art, Celebrity, and Education > MassArt Star

This project, a collaboration between Ben Aron, Kara Stokowski, and Ian Deleon, focuses on the critical exploration of the role of an art education in our Capitalist-driven art market.

"Our tongue-in-cheek satire of contemporary art completely embraces the quality and values found in the work and public personas of Art Stars such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Tracey Emin. This project seeks to foster a deeper consideration for the role of the art student in the current global art market and to familiarize members of the MassArt community with the practices of the art world elite."
