Using original photographs and essays, Museum Quality takes a witty and insightful look at art, museums, and the essential economic role that the art institution plays in our culture.
"No one has succeeded in formulating a definition of art that would permit an anthropologist to segregate art from nonart in all the cultures of the world. (Only) in Western civilization a particular performance is deemed artistic or not by a distinctive group of authorities who make or judge art and who control the museums, conservatories, critical journals, and other organizations and institutions devoted to art as a livelihood and style of life."
