Why the Art World Is So Loathsome

Now that photographs of this year's Art Basel Miami are finally working their way out of everyone's Instagram feeds, it's worth revisiting Simon Doonan's takedown of the modern art world. First published in 2012, it explains why Doonan skipped Miami that year—and what's wrong with art today.

--- Freud said the goals of the artist are fame, money, and beautiful lovers. Based on my artist acquaintances, I would say this holds true today. What have changed, however, are the goals of the art itself. Do any exist?

How did the art world become such a vapid hell-hole of investment-crazed pretentiousness?
