Question of the day
In art school. they tell you to be aware of your influences, to be able to explain how your work responds to other art.
What I want to know is this:
Do I have to really name my influences in my artist statement? Does this help a curator value my work? Does it help a viewer find his or her way? I feel stupid doing it.
