Is It Art? Is It Fair?

Quotes about art and cynicism

The town we’re based in annually hosts one of the largest art shows in the world, the Ann Arbor Art Fair. The more cynical locals have a worn-out saying that they think is funny: “It’s not art, and it’s not fair”. So this week’s quotes are dedicated to art, and we thought we’d start with more cynicism, but up the highbrow quotient a bit:

An artist is someone who produces things that people don’t need to have but that he – for some reason – thinks it would be a good idea to give them.
-Andy Warhol

Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.
-Frank Zappa

Surely nothing has to listen to so many stupid remarks as a painting in a museum.
-Edmond & Jules de Goncourt

An art critic is someone who appreciates art, except for any particular piece of art.
-Robert Brault

Painting: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critic.
-Ambrose Bierce
