  1. I could listen to him all day.

  2. Art has no reason to excexist?
    This is to say GOD made a mistake when he created the human soul, anyone who has the lease understanding of the spiritual knows you give what you have or you lose what you got ,
    Art is iconic language, your screw up ass apes today tell me all about how screw up spiritual they really are and lost wirh out GOD.

  3. Beauty must show wisdom as beauty and wisdom are sister spirits.
    Wisdom is communication, morals, education, intutive knownage.

  4. Had to watch this for college

  5. Isnt art just another field of science with it two edges to its sword?

  6. Brilliant.

  7. I personally find this very hard to follow…

  8. "Art transforms everyday experiences into something new and unexpected."
    Still too vague. Can i call technology "art" ? Can i call science "art" too, by this way of defining "art" ?
    Is The Bible a piece of "Art" ?

  9. I love this lecture most engaging and inspiring .Beautifully delivered.Thank you !

  10. Art is shit that crazy people make.

  11. If
    only they knew how little fucks I gave about them, how I wanted to die, how I
    thought I had convinced myself that the school was nothing but a glass
    ceiling—noise preventing me from the killing silence that I possess within me,
    the silence that wants me for itself.

  12. Pls add a subtitle. 🙁

  13. 10:28 e e cummings' poem "The Sky Was"

  14. Too many contradictions in this lecture

  15. SPOILER ALERT: he does not tell what art is. I mean, he does, but it is just a bunch of characteristics of what could be art, not a defenition of the core that distinguishes everything from art. Imho, defining art is a waste of rational effort.

  16. Members of Ponzy scheme tripping over words art.

  17. would sports be consider part of art?

  18. As said in the video: "Art transforms everyday experiences into something new and unexpected." This to me seema a good aspect for understanding art. 🙂

  19. Thank you Leon, you made me better after a day where i couldnt find reason for nothing in this life

  20. He counts architecture as art but not fashion. 😐

  21. love the way he says "art"

  22. yo dis nigguh is trippin'

  23. This is candy

  24. What symphony did he say at 5:23?

  25. Lol, "what they thought the American public would be about"

  26. Absolutely essential viewing, thank you.

  27. I'm pretty sure I've watched this before, but I can't remember most of the points, so I'm watching it again this time in a different light. I know who Leon is!

  28. greetings . 

    if view daze solve the nurtured psychology of subject matter , an enlightened dream , , appears quiet naturally, trance forming the conscious perception of space .

  29. 'what they thought the Republic was going to be about' – that is a glass of words that can be seen in two ways.

  30. Leon Botstein seems to be selling some kind of Ponzi scheme… oh wait…

  31. last long impacting…..Simplicity is Elegance

  32. I think what he said about acting is that has a lot of techniques and bone content.

  33. What he means is able to visualize the art of quality.

  34. His advice at the end is absolutely spot-on: people too passively consume art without trying to make it. For example, once you pick up a guitar and start trying to play, you quickly realize why certain artists receive so much praise. Likewise, once you start making your own art, you gain a new appreciation in a gallery, in a movie, at an exhibit, etc. Praxis fosters sensibility.

  35. An hour well spent!

  36. this guy had some very interesting points. Will definitely look at this further. I like this.

  37. BO-RING! "speaking on art" is as drawing math!

  38. 8:30

  39. I'm inspired even more to create after watching this video, THANKS.

  45. "Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable." (Banksy)
