clearly the forum is not a place for art photography, looking at the comments. if you don't know what concept Sherman has been developing for her entire career of course you wont appreciate her images, as her work is as much about the concept behind as it is about the image. she plays with traditional pop culture cliches, so a lot of her images are purposely gaudy. art is not always "nice to look at", at least not since the impressionist.

Well of course there is 'art', and then there is 'good art', and the definitions of those tend to change between people.
I think there are a lot of artists out there doing cool and neat things, which I think are important to our cultural development, but I personally find the work they produce to be utterly boring and uninteresting to look at more than once or twice. It is the kind of thing that deserves to be on public display. Something that would stay out for a time while it is highly relevant to the current time period, and then shifted over to a rotating collection where they bring 'historic' pieces out for a few weeks every now and then.
