If an artist creates work that nobody sees, does it have an effect? Probably not, huh?
Why the art world is a disaster - by Roger Kimball
You can read the entire article yourself. I found a lot of merit in what Roger Kimball says in his article. What I didn't see was a solution or a perceived direction. He isn't the first to say what he has about the current directions in the arts. But this is a very succinct statement, clearly argued.
If there is a solution, it certainly isn't addressed in this article. But it looks like I'm a little late to the table with this one. Edward Winkleman has a post up with a note to look at the discussion on Artblog.net. Happy reading.
