The Meaning of Art

  • The value of art depends on the values of the art critic.
  • Most art is born as imitation, not innovation.
  • The critic, not the artist, is the one who defines innovation, and rates it.
  • The artist is merely a vehicle for the aesthetic/ideology of the critic.
  • The critic is the real artist.
