Art exists for both artists and audiences.

Consider the nature of art created specifically for audience expectations, as contrasted with the idea of art as an individual expression that exists for an aesthetic purpose generally accessible to the culture as a whole. Both are necessary, yet the latter of the two is the most distinctive, forward-thinking, and essential.

And, without such a perspective as motivates the latter artist and audience, there is no cultural progress in the arts, but only repetition of the predictable.
