Why the Art World Is So Loathsome – Eight Theories By Simon Doonan


Here is an article in Slate by Simon Doonan that details the ills of the contemporary art world. It is written with a scathing tone and dismisses, almost entirely, the notion as to why the art world finds itself in the shape it is today.

Nevertheless, it is not an article about art history, and I can say that it is a thought provoking read with some points that resonate strongly with me. I find the comments about art and fashion, and the “post-skill movement” to be particularly relavent.
