The lecture provides a discussion and an insightful platform to investigate how art can contribute our appreciation of life that release our tensions and nervousness from a pandemic and lock-down situation “Stay Home Stay Safe””. Definitely Art can make more colorful and fascination to our living. As quoted by John Baldessari (1971), “I will not make any more boring art” and then he burnt much of his early work (Cremation Project 1970). Let us walk around the Art World with different artists, different art styles, and different museums etc., and mostly important we can find out more enjoyment and excitement through understanding art. Finally it is time to make a self-reflection on how art contributes our life artistically, culturally, psychological, and philosophically. And now we can free ourselves from boredom.
