Palm Springs Art Museum: “We don’t want art that is offensive”

Could 2020 get any more interesting? Still over a month to go so I’m sure there will be a competition for dumbest art move of the year.

The Palm Springs Art Museums has openly stated that they are against exhibiting art that shows nudity. Well, not quite, but they are against showing kitsch that shows nudity, which is to say, they not only think of themselves as the rightful arbiters of what is and isn’t “real” art, they are meeting the demands of “woke” and cancel culture by agreeing that a sculpture of Marilyn Monroe “objectifies women, is sexually charged and disrespectful?”

Anyone who reads this blog knows quite well that the foundation of art is violence, religion, and…nudity. So, go out and see it, take a selfie, Instagram it. You have three years.
