In this episode Jeff takes a look at three towering examples of postmodern art, and how they can aesthetically “move us” forward.
- Cirque de Soleil – a thrilling display of surface without depth
- The Seinfeld TV Show – a show not “about nothing”, just nothing meaningful
- The Saatchi Gallery in London — fine art that dares us to say it’s not fine art
One is pretty, one is aggressively ugly and one doesn’t care one way or the other. But all are beautiful in the way they move the aesthetic line of development forward by liberating us from ideas of what art should be or do.
