Teaching the Liberal Arts in the American Context
The Tyranny of Artistic Modernism
Print
By David Kidd, August 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Mark Anthony Signorelli and Nikos A. Salingaros argue that modern art, despite its declared aspiration to escape the distortions of received traditions, nevertheless operates according to a discernible logic (a tradition, of sorts): a logic of hostility to the natural, the human, the traditional, and civilization itself. Their article, "The Tyranny of Artistic Modernism" appears in the New English Review, and friends of ISI are sure to find it well worth the read.
