  • Puleese! If modern art ever had clothes it doesn’t on this show. Modern art hasn’t been modern in 50 years. This is a perfect example of how silly and out of touch and ivory towerish modern art has become.

    And Think has problems too. The show refuses to ask tough questions of this guest – poor journalism. And moderator Boyd couldn’t appear more bored or less interested. I don’t blame her for that – art reduced to nonsense – and not even profound nonsense like DADA – but just moronic nonsense like this, is hard to take.

    Yet we need a moderator that is passionate for the audience. If Boyd shows no interest in art – her attitude seems to be, good art ? bad art?, what does it matter – then it is an affront to an audience who actually cares about art – cares enough to challenge bad art and celebrate good.

    And further Think refuses to talk about the real date in art history, 1/8/02 On that date there was a groundbreaking Conceptual art event that used conceptual art to attack the abuses of conceptual art. And that major event in modern art history happened here in Dallas!

    Refuse to ask tough questions of the guest, refuse to cover new developments in the arts, and refuse to show interest with the art talked about? We deserve better – or perhaps we’ll follow suit and refuse to watch.
