#wacasnu Words a Contemporary Artist Should Never Use

Critics! Artists! Artsy friends! I’m compiling a list for a new project and need your help!

I’m looking for words artists should never use in their artist’s statements (e.g. explore), or when describing their work (e.g. meditative). It could also be words that are taboo within the general contemporary art conversation as well (e.g. spiritual).

Please submit words using the hashtag in Twitter, comment on FB or on the tumblr page here. If you prefer your contribution to be anonymous you can email me:

I can’t give more details yet but stay tuned, and thanks!
