If you think that Wikipedia is going to help you define your world then there are probably some much more basic questions about your life that you ought to be looking into. See how much you can find out by tuning off your computer, getting off your ass and going outside and actually having some sort of real physical experience. It's all about finding out about your relationship to the world. Good luck. Cheers.
wikipedia sucks....big time.
art is NOT in the eye of the beholder. avant-garde art is not subject to taste. decorator art - is all taste. thats peoples biggest problem with the "what is art" question. go to a museum, then go to 90% of the "art galleries" and if you don't notice a difference, maybe wikipedia is the place for you.
Art is the chronicle of culture.
And someday the artists will all go on strike, depriving us of our culture...

I like to think of art as a celebration of our creativity.
It's our creativity that does the most to define us within the animal kingdom.
