The arts matter

What more can we ask for from street art ?

... a little strange ...

... the presence of absence ...

It isn't the artworks which are on display, but the extravagant visitors. Public art relies on massive scale to sell itself. Symmetry has a cultural authority but is fundamentally irrational.

extravagant art matters

The arts matter because they define the soul of a civilisation.

John Tusa

Decadent art is not eliminated by its repression, but deeply internalized as advanced art's necessary opposite.

Donald Kuspit

The meaning of decadence is assumed to be self-evident, and decadent art is assumed to be inherently despicable.
