Camille Paglia on Reclaiming The Arts
Camille Paglia is an intellectual firestarter. Her writing about art, sexuality and literature is sure to inspire eyebrow lifting and some highfalutin debate.
Her most recent book's message, however, is pretty simple: we need to reeducate ourselves in the visual arts, and this is how. "Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars," does exactly what the title suggests. Although perhaps the most entertaining part of the book is her rollicking introduction, dicing up the state of contemporary art.
She gets straight to the point with WFPL's Morning Edition Host, Jonathan Bastian, in this interview.
