On Artists

Ashleigh Wilson
If we denounce an artist for bad behaviour, what becomes of the work that remains?
The #MeToo movement is overturning a cliché that has forgiven bad behaviour for years: to be creative is to be prone to eccentricity, madness, addiction and excess. No longer can artists be excused from the standards of conduct that apply to us all. But if we denounce the artist, then what becomes of the work that remains?
