Discusses the influence of modernism on contemporary art. The author notes that Clement Greenberg's definition of modernism referred to a tradition of artists from Raphael to Rothko, considers the misreading of Greenberg's work in Has Modernism Failed? by Suzi Gablik (1984), and relates her critique of spiritualism to the video The Holy Artwork (2001) by Christian Jankowski. He examines the effects of Homemade Aesthetics (1999) by Clement Greenberg and Farewell to an Idea (1999) by T. J. Clark on recent trends in modernism, situates these debates within the cultural framework suggested by A Singular Modernity (2002) by Frederic Jameson, and argues that debates about modernism continue to remain important to contemporary art.
