Science should be distinguished from art. Art is about appreciation while science to understand. People can enjoy the expert in the art, and were able to demonstrate good artwork, but when asked why a work of fine art and others not so good, he may not be able to answer. whereas, the choice of the various works of fine art is always right. People of this type are an art fan, and can judge art based on his experience in dealing with works of art. But an art expert who will actually be able to choose the good work of art as well as to account for why the work of considered good.
In the experience of living art in Indonesian, at a glance it can be concluded more art lovers who lack an understanding of art than a science of art lovers who understand the art equipped with the knowledge. Indonesia first people to enjoy the art world rather than studying the science of the art world. We first became connoisseurs of art and later developed into an artist, not a scientific art expert. Indonesia and artists, of course, also study the various arts to support the creation of his art, but they use the wealth of art for himself alone.
Art can be reviewed in terms of aesthetics, which is the object of science as well as philosophy. Based on the art form can also be analyzed formalnya.seni can also be the object of history. There was also the sociology of art, anthropology of art, psychology, art, pebandingan art, art criticism. ekonoi not to mention the aspect of art, about the arts management, arts marketing, etc.. Art science has yet to be distributed into several areas of special art. There is a science of art, theater arts, dance, literary arts, music, art, architecture, etc..
art Sciences have not developed in Indonesia, even though college of art is pretty much, many of them have even opened the S1 and S2. in the Colleges should be developed in the sciences of art. Art scientists are expected to emerge from there, in addition to the art of artists. Scientific disciplines of art can be provided in addition to the discipline of artistic creativity. If it is run, will be born scientist of art or artists who have art in scientific knowledge.
Obvious, colleges of art can print art scientists, because it disciplines its objective. From the art college is expected to be born many scholarly works of art.
Arts can not be grown suddenly. Arts was preceded by a number of studies are long and varied art. From the the various arts of data and scientific conclusion were then able to formulate a science
Another spoke of the reality in the field. Sciences in Indonesia are still looking for art forms. The research is still rare and sporadic in nature is still. There is not scientific journal of sociology of art, for example. Or art history journals. That there is a new journal of art that very generally.
Art introduction books in general or in particular also has not come. Indeed there is a translation, but even this amount was inadequate. We need real science of Indonesian art. Sciences to work on the Indonesian art of ethnic art objects, keraton art or classical, modern art. This also is not completely done. there has been no study of ethnic arts philosophy, philosophy of art of keraton, the philosophy of modern art. Still to be arranged also ethnic theater sciences, or the keraton (eg, puppets). Uses knowledge of art is not just for artists or art lovers, but also for the various institutions that take care of the arts, and of course for the advancement of art it self.
