What we say to the Art Establishment -" You’re not my mom!"


Regular readers of this blog will be aware of our unofficial motto - We respect great art,  not great reputations. In fact, we never shy away from taking on the art Establishment(with a capital E). In the words of Sarah Hoyt- " You’re not my mom!"


Here's her quote in greater fullness-



In the Arts, the lawgivers of the current Establishment are the revolutionaries who overthrew the previous Establishment, the Avant Garde become the Garde. The sign and watchwords of an Establishment are the words “thou shalt not,” and the first sign of revolt is a small voice that says, defiantly, “Sez who? You’re not my mom!”
Yup, we are that small voice.
