Re: “David Byrne: MoMA Curator Told Lady Gaga She Isn't an Artist

This from the museum that just sold us Tim Burton as a great artiste. Everything that guy has ever done has been a fourth-hand recycling of gothic clich├ęs... sometimes clever and entertaining, but not remotely original or profound.

MoMA is a big commercial enterprise; their overpriced catalogue and gift shop reveal their strategy of turning modernism into consumer tchotchkes. Their Burton show was a blatant bid to sell tickets -- exactly the same as "science" museums doing exhibits of props from Star Trek.

Gaga is young, unseasoned, and egotistical, and she, like Burton, is a pastiche artist, but MoMA can't elevate one of them and sneer at the other.

Who wants to bet that MoMA will do a Gaga career retrospective within 30 years?
