Boy, You're Lovin': Art education creates artists who believe that they don't have to work very hard to make something of immeasurable value

by Emily Vey Duke

A questioning of what is missing from contemporary art, and how we can do it better.

" embodies so much of what I feel is missing in contemporary art discourse. It's unflinching, openly narcissistic, candid to the point of embarassment, and it's about things that really matter: suffering, empathy, art and the greater good."
