what's so hideous...

I spent a good part of the morning looking at art blogs and art websites and artist's websites and websites of art museum and magazines. What is so hideous is of course the level of absolutely isolated elitism. Art people are those who exist in a world where the silly and ugly and experimental are considered fun and cute and worthy of consideration. The idea that non-art people could venture into this isolated bubble, where everything looks like it is for sale, where much of the design (ie; the stuff that is not "art" but which supports the art), all of this stuff is borrowed from retailers. Rebecca Smith is some sort of Judith Miller figure, whose lies are excused because she is in touch with the money. Of course this "worthiness of consideration"is a truly, profoundly lazy excuse for not considering anything.
