MODULE 6. Unit 8 "The art world"




§  Have you visited any art galleries or museums recently?

§  At the moment, are there any special exhibitions on in your town or country? Are you going to visit them?

§  In general, are art galleries in your country free or do you have to pay to visit them? Which do you think is best and why: a charge to cover costs? Free entry? A voluntary contribution?

§  Some cities organise one night each year - typically sometime in summer - during which some museums stay open until very late at night. Have you ever been to a museum late at night? Was it an interesting experience?

§  Do you own any interesting pieces of art or would you like to? What sort of art would you buy/collect?

§  Are you in any way artistic?

§  Has anything you painted/sculpted/designed, etc. ever been on public display?

§  Have you ever tried to buy something at an auction? What was the process?

§  Many people's tastes in art can be summed up by the comment "I don't know much about art, but I know what I like." What do you feel about that comment?

§  Is it possible to appreciate art without liking it? Can you think of any examples?

§  Are there specific works of art that you like by an artist even if you don't especially like that particular artist?
