I am afraid that many of us humans have the failing of thinking that because we know more than most people about some field that our knowledge is superior in all fields. Think some of our tenured professors. Unfortunately Podhoretz shows us that the failing can even apply to those whose opinions are sometimes admired by us.

Well said, Sissy.

This is why I seldom if ever comment on art. I have zero background and nothing on which to base a commentary. Sometimes it even takes a while before I can figure out whether or not I like something.

Now if they just said that they "personally" don't like it - and left it there... well to each his or her own. But to have little or no background and then try to create an overall critique, this is always a mistake.

I could understand some of the hue and cry if this had been publicly funded, but since this is not the case, I don't see the huge problem. Especially as it's a short term display and not permanent. (if I read all that correctly)
