"Creativity Gatekeepers"

In some circles, there is a notion that art and creativity is an individual level phenomenon, and that the value and beauty of art is in the eye of the beholder. That is true to some extent, but according to Dr. Csikszentmihalyi’s systems theory on creativity, creativity is a cultural-level phenomenon. This type of creativity we are studying is the kind that adds value, changes culture, and redefines domains. This type of creativity is not determined by the individual but by a community of experts. These experts serve as gatekeepers for what ideas, products, or creations are acceptable and worthy to be added to the domain of knowledge. For example, if it were not for the community of scientists who could properly understand and validate Einstein’s theory of relativity, it would not have been disseminated and incorporated to into our current domain of knowledge. As such, all individual creative products are judged and validated, but the process of validation in the art world is influence by national culture far more than in physics and mathematics. This current study uses contemporary art as a medium to investigate these cultural differences.

If you would like to participate in this study, please follow this link. Your opinions play an integral role in this study. In addition, if you know any individuals active in the art community (ex. Professors, gallery owners, art collectors, etc,) please forward the link to them as well. Their opinions are a greatly valued part of this study.
