Two Short David Markson Citations on Contemporary Art

From David Markson’s The Last Novel:

People who actually believe that Christo’s tangerine-colored bedsheets fluttering about in New York’s Central Park had something even remotely to do with art.

People who actually believe that Damien Hirst’s fourteen-foot shark in a tank of formaldehyde has something even remotely to do with art.

    It is the art of a culture of dissipation and dissolution. Like the artists in Fellini’s ‘Satyricon’. Sic transit gloria mundi. Back to neo-Fascism. It is unintentionally symbolic of itself.
