‘art’ as a term for exclusion

‘Art’ is a term of exclusion.

There. I’ve said it.

To say one thing is art is to deny that that other thing (right over there, elsewhere, whose? well, not mine) is not. There cannot be such a thing as inclusive art.
I leave it up to each of us to decide whether that’s a good thing or not. (I’ve laid down my cards already.)
