I don't know about a spanking as Denver's D is ridiculously good.

 

I hope it's an offensive display though. Something like 47-46.

 

Probably more like 31-27 Carolina.

She is referring to the capacity to present a interpretation that is acceptable to the art world (versus editorial model looks being selected to be acceptable to the fashion world), the formulation is misleading (does this originate with the artist intention? Doesn't the work need to enjoy wider popularity although only some people can provide "acceptable" interpretations etc.) but her point makes sense.

I dunno man.  There are some interesting points in the article, but her use of that analogy doesn't read that way you are reading it.  So either the point was lost in translation, or it's just a load of horseshit which translates into "the editorial models are chosen to appeal only to a bunch of elitist assholes who choose the models not in small part so that they can indulge in being elitist assholes."

1) I never watch football during the regular season

2) The Superbowl is a fun event.  I will enjoy it even though I barely know/don't care, who is playing.  As long as you understand the rules of the game and the basic strategies with which it is played, it can be really enjoyable to watch.

That's pretty much how I read it with the small modification above

Isn't this how every mode of art (in the very broad sense) works nowadays? at least that's my sociological point of view.

Eh, I don't know. There are a lot of interesting arguments for "high brow" art. Clement Greenberg defended modernism, for example, by saying that abstract art was the only way art could survive in a post-photography world (no more painting horses and bowls of fruit, art was now all about asking conceptual questions no one could answer). He also claimed that "commoner" art was kitschy and prone to political manipulations (see fascism).

Obviously not without its own critiques, but it wasn't just "people created modernism so they could feel better about themselves."

You can read his essay Avant Garde and Kitsch.
