Letter to ARC

From Alex Martin

Published before 2005


Hello,

The world of so-called "Modern Art" is structured much like an organized religion, with churches/galleries, priests/curators, theologians/art critics, and so on. I do not hate anyone, but I will not view any such "art" or buy it. I have known first-hand of similar artwork being denied recognition as "fine art" when attempted by today's new artists. Apparently the freedom implied in producing "art" is rigidly controlled by a group that in fact decides what is and is not "art."

Regards,
Alex
