Advertising and the Querulous Canvas

Scott, Linda (2005) Advertising and the Querulous Canvas. Advertising & Society Review, 6 (4).


Art has been boxed in, framed by narrow constraints set to satisfy a forgotten aristocratic imperative. Though we have lost touch with the origins of our convictions about what is and is not art, we still suffer from a continuing compulsion to confer that name upon a small subset of human artifacts: to elevate them, isolate them, and, in the process, blind ourselves to the art in the ordinary, everyday, and accessible. It's a poisonous ideology, one that demeans and belittles to preserve the rights of a class that thinks itself superior.
