Is Modern Art  Rubbish

Yesterday, I was moaning about people who go on about proper pictures that look like something real.  This mood was brought on by a TV news report which started by asking the question posed above; it was, of course, an intro to a piece on Michael Landy’s Art Bin project, so  it would be optimistic to expect a more sophisticated approach. 

Apparently, that is true also of the Guardian; today’s article on Landy by Charlotte Higgins uses the same phrase.  It’s an interesting project and “raises questions about” quality in art – but using the old cliches of dismissal is a mistake, I think.  Having said that, I’ve just done it myself, so what do I know?
