provoke and disturb

Reading the materials these days you’d know that art is about celebrating, bringing together, and affirming. You’d know that its about creative self-expression. It’s harder somehow to find reference to things like the fact that the arts might challenge, provoke or disturb. It’s hard to find an emphasis on things like difficulty, difference, division or dissent.
