The farse of art

In order to appear legitimate and above commercial aims, some artists strategize a series of calculated moves that are designed to give an air of altruism and intellectual and/or artistic superiority to their lesser commercial artist counterparts.

They will do things like not have a website or allow interviews –which they do only to keep up their desired perception: “A serious artist doesn’t have a website” –Not because they really don’t think a website is a good idea (or an interview or anything commercial)

But after they have achieved the recognition for being ‘serious’ artists’, the next thing to get is money and celebrity and that’s when they are all of a sudden happy to plaster their face anywhere that will offer enough money or exposure.
