So, nothing new here. If anything, this is old news. But The Atlantic is talking about the commercial market. That doesn't mean there isn't anything new under the sun. Quality is not defined by quantity. This is a new world. The old rules don't apply. I have an intuition the music world isn't as bad as it is presented to be. Although I am not a connoisseur of the contemporary art world, and basically too old and otherwise distracted to care a lot, I can still see there is much that lives under the surface. And that's where real art thrives anyway, isn't it?
