If you were preparing for a debate with someone who hated art, this might be a good way to get ready.
Rodger Kimball rants and rants about easy targets in the arts. It feels like being trapped with one's hick relatives.
I don't mind an opinion different from mine, but Kimball does not use evidence. He just harrumphs titles of works he finds ridiculous and art that he does not understand.
He then claims that art by women and minorities is just "affirmative action"and the white guy artists are just stupid.
Lane gave a fine reading of a terrible book.
The premise is just awful. Some old white guy hates new stuff. Boring.
I really don't understand the point of this book. It is like someone who hates classical music writing a book on classical music.
