The General Opinion

The General Opinion offers a place to share and discuss the role of art in each of our lives. It is a dumping ground for opinions, thoughts, feelings and emotions about, or provoked by, art. Utilising the frenzied, sharing world of the internet and the opportunities of a democratic election, The General Opinion is a forum on art for anyone with an internet connection.

In collaboration with publishing/curating/producing/thinking collective Medium Rare, The General Opinion began as a project to collect opinions of art, seeking to open an honest discussion on the varied aspects of art.
