It’s only outmoded if one thinks that art progresses in a linear way, and that this year’s art disqualifies last year’s. But I don’t believe that there is any such progression. That kind of thinking is a fiction of certain criticism and of the art market. If a work of art is alive, it is alive, no matter when it was made.

Annie Kevans is painting portraits of women artists whom “art history” has basically forgotten, like Dorothea Tanning, a prolific poet, painter, and sculptor of the 20th century (pictured above).
