Exhibitionism Summary

Exhibitionism: Art in the Era of Intolerance by Lynne Munson

Exploring the culture of intolerance that overtook the art world in the postmodern era, Lynne Munson shows how a new dogmatism established itself in the NEA, museums, academia, and even the artist's studio, where experimental art was favored at the expense of the traditional, and limits placed on what might be funded, exhibited, studied, and created. The subject is hot. Her tone is cool. Her case histories speak for themselves. This is a brave book. Andrew Forge, Yale School of Art. Invaluable and shockingly intelligent...Lynne Munson lays bare the new, rigid art ethic enforced by government bureaucrats and official academicians. Maggie Gallagher, Washington Times. Illustrated.
