ART PAPERS 39.03 - May/June 2015

Regular price $10.00 Sale

One of the ways in which “high” art seems to distinguish itself from its ostensibly lower or more democratic forms is by condemning expressions of fanaticism in favor of a projected criticality. It is without bias, like Hogarth’s turbaned observer, that this May/June issue of ART PAPERS provided a (discrete) forum for discussions of renown, and its impact on artistic identity and process; on accessibility; and on longevity--effects mediated through television, theory, and new technology. It is not, however, without enthusiasm, or imagination--while we can do without fanaticism, we cannot do without fantasy.
