Art today?

I dunno. This requires more time than I have right now. But I'm no longer as enamoured with contemporary art as I once was. Some stuff is still interesting. But money has corrupted art... money and education actually. The careerist path of going through a tertiary qualification. The infrastructure of the art world, quite aside from the artists themselves... the people who are dipping their hands in the money stream. The institutions and the administrators - what's in, what's out. Art really is a business... yes, probably always was to some degree, but seems that there are a lot more 'cooks in the kitchen' and the artist is more a Sous Chef or Line Cook brewing up whatever flavour of the month is required of them.
