Abstract

This paper discusses the notion of aesthetic awareness and its relevance when judging various forms of art, with an emphasis on sound art. The term ‘aesthetic awareness’ refers to a personal cognizance of the interactions between aesthetic features, idiosyncratic aesthetic criteria, persuasion, aesthetic judgements, and the consequences of these judgements. The paper proposes that extrinsic aesthetic features and aesthetic judgements act as mechanisms for promoting conceptual, personal, and social entities. Some of the paper’s findings are based on formal interviews with curators from North America, Europe, and Asia.
