It's a Masterpiece, Whatever that Means... (LA TIMES)

Cool article discussing the loaded term "masterpiece." It starts by detailing the inaugural exhibition at the new Centre Pompidou-Metz, but the cool part is the second half of the article where SoCal art world folks address the idea of the term "masterpiece."

Not really Art 2.0 stuff... though apparently the show itself "grapples with notions of uniqueness in an age of endless reproductions" which is very cool.

A quote from the article:
"The concept of the masterpiece travels uncomfortably to more contemporary and experimental arenas, and it is certainly a last resort to describe and legitimize today's meaningful art production.",0,4027735.story?page=1
