No pressure! And beyond that, they have to somehow transform their communities while abandoning any presumed authority to know more about their given art form than the average Joe or Josephine. The hegemony of elitist white male European men who accumulated a canon must be subverted! You get the idea. To these authors, all saying the same thing in slippery NPR-speak,everything is about power and racial/gender identity and not the substance behind great art. In fact, they don't like that you keep trying to say there is such a thing as quality and that you think it's important. Of course, they defensively couch their sentiments but it's really right there. The arts are screwed only because these people are running them.
