Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Shake Up the Art Establishment

The most incisive and iconoclastic art critic of our time, Camille Paglia, sits down with InstaVision‘s Glenn Reynolds to discuss her new book Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars. Among the topics covered:

  • Why do many Americans hold modern and abstract art in such open contempt?
  • Have academics put art in a straightjacket by denying the vital importance of classical imagery, notably sacred and religious imagery, while promoting second-rate, secular, “shock” art?
  • Is George Lucas our greatest living artist?
  • Has the Democratic Party strayed from its roots by becoming bloated and statist, pushing a form of big government that threatens our liberties and personal rights?

Paglia is always entertaining as well as provocative, so even if you’re a cultural boob, there are some real nuggets of thought to glean from this interview. H/T PJTV
