Warhol Goes Social: Creativity in the Tech Age

Today, everyone is a “Creative.” With the boom of visually-based social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, technology has leveled the playing field. Does this really change how we define art and creativity? Artistic purists believe these tools cheapen the creative output with seventeen standard filters available to every untrained eye. But in true entrepreneurial spirit, those apps encourage a more democrative view of creativity, allowing user to share their inspiration with their friends and create beauty where it previously would have been impossible. Is there a difference between high-brow and low-brow art in relation to what social media enables everyone to create?

This panel will begin to tackle this debate, considering the very latest tools and trends, and arguing the new definition of creativity in the tech age.
