IT'S NOT ART, NO ONE WANTS TO SEE IT:

Under Threat: The Shock of the Old (HOLLAND COTTER, 4/18/11, NY Times)

“WHAT happened to Africa?” an art-world friend asked. “It disappeared.”

She was right. Do a quick scan of major exhibitions in big American museums in the past few years and Africa’s barely there. The same with India. Even China, usually an easier sell, is seen only discreetly. Wasn’t the multicultural surge of yesteryear supposed to produce the opposite effect?


There's only one Culture.
