Gotta love this little lecture, especially if you enjoy being an artist and are familiar with Kurt Vonnegut’s Bluebeard.
What’s wrong with Modern Art?
Nothing at all, but the 300 of which Wolfe speaks… now there’s an ill bunch indeed.
Enjoy this hour of video wisdom and then, if you haven’t read Bluebeard, do so for more schadenfreude.
Edited to add: To any who have watched that complete video, I’d love to hear your thoughts on ‘The 300’. Personally, I consider them pariahs of the First Order and responsible for cheapening the true value of art by attaching monetary values only for the super-rich. Screw you, 300. I paint because I like it, not in the hopes of catching your eye. If I was so inclined, I’d price all my work to beat Sotheby’s by a factor of at least 100, because that’s YOUR game, isn’t it?
