  • Mô tả: An analysis of the decision making of "gatekeepers" in abstract avant-garde & figurative art, based on 1979/80 interviews with newspaper critics, museum curators, & gallery owners (N not given) in Israel. Findings show that avant-garde gatekeepers' decisions are characterized by less independence than decisions made by their counterparts in different figurative styles. This difference is related to the character of professional ideologies within the framework of which the two sets of gatekeepers work. Specifically, the demand for the absolute freedom of artistic expression & the proscription of judgment in the avant-garde philosophy create a situation in which decisions cannot be based on established criteria. Consequently, such decisions are sought after in the social reality of the inner circle of the avant-garde. None of the approaches underlying various figurative styles, in contrast, require absolute openness. The availability of specific criteria for evaluating figurative art renders a similar reliance on social reality unnecessary; accordingly, individual judgment prevails in gatekeeping choices. In the Israeli art world, avant-garde & figurative art coexist in two exclusive subsystems & thus provide a unique opportunity to observe in high relief the patterns of judgment characteristic of each. 1 Table, 33 References.
