Maybe it’s avant-garde.

Alix Rule & David Levine on International Art English in Canopy Canopy Canopy.


i was contemplating addressing the sticky world of International Art English, i didn’t really want to because it’s not a world i like to enter. but i fancied being rude about it.

i have no need to say owt it’s all in this beautifully written article: http://canopycanopycanopy.com/16/international_art_english

know thine enemy.

on a personal note, my first reaction to reading the gibberish foisted on ‘art lovers’ was out and out horror, and now i simply loath it. i’m sure there are persons gathering grand collections of this nonsense but i just can’t find it funny. it’s an elitist vernacular designed to remove active purpose from language (or is that art, or life in general…). ho hum.
