interesting...artist vs performer

"Entertainment wants to give you what you want. Art wants to give you what you don't know you want."

"Entertainment condescends to what it perceives as your level. Art assumes you're at a high level and wants to take you higher -- it conascends."

"It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors."
- Oscar Wilde

"No artist desires to prove anything. Even things that are true can be proved."
- Oscar Wilde, to whom this section is humbly dedicated

"Yes, the public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius."
- Oscar Wilde

"We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely. All art is quite useless."
- Oscar Wilde
