Bucking the Artworld Tide : Reflections on Art, Pseudo Art, Art Education & Theory
by Michelle Marder Kamhi




Overview -

Today's artists and art lovers who adhere to a traditional view of art are virtually submerged in the tsunami of anti-traditional work and supporting critical spin generated by the contemporary artworld. Bucking the Artworld Tide---comprising more than three decades of the author's contrarian writing and speaking---is written from their perspective. It offers a solid defense of traditional visual art, as well as trenchant critiques of countless "new art forms" invented since the early 20th century and of the flawed theoretical assumptions behind them. A key part of the volume constitutes a critique of K-12 art education, which has all too readily adopted the contemporary artworld's anti-traditional mindset.
