Sacrifice of culture value in globalization
Globalization is about the exchange of cultures, values and expressions. It is natural that the developed countries that have revolutionized art as a result of globalization encourage acceptance of their cultures by other artists and countries (McAndrew, 2011). Due to this initiative, the museums around the world have accepted artworks from buyers globally. This has affected the uniqueness of cultures. In many cases, cultural stereotypes were reinforced. For instance, Western artists were consistent with their stereotyping while Eastern artists have faced losses and do not receive chances to project their cultures better. Not many were pleased in the East about globalization as they found their art treasures to leave the origin and the prices have also gone unaffordable. Many artworks made by artists in China and Africa did not receive great responses as they expected because people in the West have already convinced the buyers. The problem with this setup is the presence of cultural dominance where one dominates the other. West is distinctly noticed and they are comfortable with the developments of globalization. For the East to become comfortable, they look forward to more opportunities to display the uniqueness of their cultures.
All the three theories and ideologies have shown the positive impacts of globalization on the art world. In the history of Dutch and Chinese world, globalization has now given space for both East and West (Barboza, 2009). Further looking into the art history, West has been dominant for a longer run and East has gained a revival to express and achieve in the field of art. This section has clarified that globalization has only had positive impacts and encouraged artists to explore new forms of expression and cultural uniqueness.
