Contemporary Culture • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Daniel Oreskes's strategic pauses work well to clarify complex phrasing, often making the exact meaning of a sentence jump into the spotlight. This use of his dramatic skills, along with his clear voice and assertive tone, makes absorbing this thoughtful writing an invigorating experience. Artistic innovation versus the authority of tradition is the subject of this defense of how art breaks molds and rebels against existing standards. In the musical, visual, and literary arts, the author says artists need those molds and traditions to ground what they do within an artistic lineage. However, the essence of transformational art is to not be constrained by political and cultural boundaries but to create work that is independent of fixed definitions and categories of correctness.
