Is this true? Michael Lewis… comments on indifference in museum spectatorship today. Is this based on the opinion that objects should be more venerated in the space of an institution or a shift in cultural opinion on what (and who) deems judgement and value in art?

“our society can no longer distinguish — effectively distinguish — between a Harley-Davidson Sportster and a 3,000-year-old golden mask from Egyptian New Kingdom, (and) can’t make a qualitative judgment about intrinsic value.”

Is that necessary to experience beauty?
