In this first blog post, I’m pleased to trumpet the release next week of the book I’ve been working on for more than a decade: Who Says That’s Art? A Commonsense View of the Visual Arts.
As emphasized in the press release announcing publication, the book throws down the gauntlet to the contemporary art establishment. I look forward to a lively debate regarding the challenge I’ve posed.
I will use this space to refine and expand upon the argument presented in Who Says That’s Art?, as well as to offer further observations on the world of art, past and present.
I invite readers to comment, pro or con, provided they do so civilly—under their real name, unless there’s a compelling reason not to do so.
I look forward to hearing from you!
