Re: A trip to the museum

Andre,

Thanks for inviting us into your world of art exhibitions and museums.  An interesting story and set of photos.  I enjoyed it!  Glad to know that you are getting out there and checking out the goods on display  when you can.

As for Jeff Koons, along with many of his contemporaries and predecessors of the last few decades, well, I dislike, too.  For the most part, the works of these post world war II painters and sculptors lack a certain something or quality; a certain resonance is absent.  These types of works lack gravitas, in my opinion, which makes them too frivolous in my eyes.  And for me, there is almost nothing worse than the glorification of cheap, commercial art in a society where everything, as well as every thing, has long since been commodified.

My apologies!  I know this is a camera gear forum and not a space where discussions of the theories of art and aesthetics take place.
