Mr. Shearer shrugged off the question. “Oh, I don’t know,” he said. “Aren’t we 40 years too late for that — didn’t Andy Warhol destroy that question? It’s art because of the fact that it’s happening in an art context.”
I don't know if it's art, but I like it.
What Harry Shearer espouses is called the institutional theory of art and serious aesthetes take such questions very seriously.P.
"Arts" Editor RespondsWe're w/ Harry on this one. You call it "art" & you slap it in an institution, it's art.Even if the Philistines don't like it.
