Art for Art's Sake

An artist who baked a life-size model of her own naked body out of bread dough will watch her audience eat it at an exhibition.

I don’t know much about art, so I can’t do much besides scoff. But I did dig up a few Chesterton quotes that seem apt:

“Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.”

“This bias against morality among the modern aesthetes is . . . not really a bias against morality; it is a bias against other people’s morality.”

Thanks, TDE.
