Flash and Chatter

Art Papers Magazine;Sep/Oct2001, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p9
The author reflects on the diminishing dialogue concerning art. The author inferred that art-talk was well established in the mid-1980s and theory was vital both to artists and to the art critics and audiences. However, the author believed that the situation changed in the new century as art has become full of languages of pop culture and the smatter of art journalism. He suggested that the remaining resources for dialogue must be exploited to facilitate significant discussions regarding art.
