Pinder pg. 217-231

In this chapter it says “there is no room for such complexities at the MOMA show” so it comes off that the MOMA doesn’t want to have issues or problems when it comes to presenting the art. Then on page 222 it says “Cultural background is not essential to correct aesthetic appreciation and analysis: good art, the masterpiece, is universally recognizable.” When it’s put like this, is it saying that art museums don’t need to provide context of the art because it’s something recognizable and understandable to everyone? I hint a little bit of bitterness when it says “What was good enough for Picasso is good enough for MOMA.”
