Art is Art?

Flipping to the Op-Ed page of the Boston Globe today, I was suprised and encouraged to see that they printed a column criticizing a recent exhibit at the Jewish Museum in New York. This kind of exhibit, which featured works that use Holocaust themes (and nazi symbols) in a postmodernist context of irony and kitsch, seems so tired and done-before, and contributes little to the tradition of Art and cultural offerings in this country.

And if the Globe isn’t a sufficiently Liberal source, (it’s probably the most Liberal major newspaper of record, thankfully), The Village Voice offered a negative review too. I’d be interested to hear first-hand, from people who’ve attended it. Anyone checked it out?
