Many observers think so, but acclaimed British critic Waldemar Januszczak disagrees. In this program he argues that great art is as interested in beauty as it always was, but that perhaps the definition of beauty has changed-and we're looking for it in the wrong places.

Abstract:

Has beauty vanished from contemporary art? Must today's painting and sculpture repel the eye in order to be taken seriously by the avant-garde? Many observers think so, but acclaimed British critic Waldemar Januszczak disagrees. In this program he argues that great art is as interested in beauty as it always was, but that perhaps the definition of beauty has changed-and we're looking for it in the wrong places. By the same token, Januszczak asserts, today's strife-ridden world needs beauty-honest, authentic, heartfelt beauty-more than ever, and it is the uncompromising artist who serves as principal supplier of that precious commodity. The video contains interviews with Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Tatsuo Miyajima, and other well-known figures from the art world.
