“The Banishment of Beauty”

This is a fascinating talk/slide show about art in  contemporary western society, from a talk given by artist Scott Burdick. While he is obviously quite as slanted ‘modern’ art as the contemporary art world is against traditional works,  many interesting points are made, and his arguments regarding the suppression of beauty are convincing; we’ve all seen it.

That said, I  think there is an extreme at either side, and it’s absurd to think that there cannot be room for all art (thank you, internet)– but I would certainly not wish to see the Picassos or Matisses in the MoMA suddenly replaced by paintings of children holding kittens!
