Re: [-empyre-] making a meta-living

Alan - in an attempt to attract you out of your lurkership (or an
invitation to reply to me offlist) I'd be interested to know:  if you
don't believe in pure art (apropos my def. as art about art versus art
with some "non intrinsic" content) where/how do you categorise artists
like (for eg.) Albers or Max Bill?

Just want to say I don't believe for a second in pure art, nor do I think that art follows lineage necessarily at all. I also think a hell of a lot of the art going on today in the galleries is terrific and that competition helps make it so, whether online or off - and for that matter, real and virtual are more or less smashing together.

That said, I'm going back to silence - too many enemies on this list.
