Went to the Tate Modern exhibition of about 100+ 20th century modernist pics from Elton John's collection. So hard to appreciate some of the things that people judging it as "Art" see great merit in. Some simply look banal. Lot of Man Ray there if you like that kind of thing. For me the documentary stuff, including Dorothea Lange's Migrant Mother was great, but I kept juggling with the certainty that much of the rest would get bombed in the beginners section of a club comp. Is that due entirely to lack of perception on the part of judges? Are they utter Philistines, or are art fanciers extraordinarily easy to please when faced with a tiny blurry snapshot in a big frame, done by someone famous in 1918?
