Purty Pictures

I'm fascinated by The Art Renewal Center - a web site, on-line museum and organization devoted apparently to decrying modernism and post-modernism in all its forms. The first paragraph of their mission statement contains"

Modernist theory, backed by an enormous network of powerful and influential art dealers, came to acquiring complete control over thousands of museums, university art departments and journalistic art criticism. We at the Art Renewal Center have fully and fairly analyzed their theories and have found them wanting in every respect, devoid of substance and built on a labyrinth of easily disproved fallacies, suppositions and hypotheses.

Whatever. Lots of purty pictures, whatever you may think of their philosophy and goals!
