“Purist” qualities in music have allowed its medium to surpass the visual arts today.
The avant-garde has been turned inside out.
Visual art continues to spin its wheels in postmodernist uselessness.
The “radical or innovative” music today continues to excel in modernist doctrine.
Doris Salcedo and Ai Wei Wei are given to us as important and radical.
But how good are they?
Are there parallels between Duchamp’s “Fountain” and Cage’s “4’ 33”?
How has this played out in the arts today?
