Melamid on art and religion

"I truly believe that art has become a religion. . . . If you like the Mona Lisa, God bless you, there's nothing wrong with that -- just as you can believe in Jesus, or in any God you want. But the organized church of art, those education departments that try to convince people by force of persuasion that this or that is good art, doesn't leave you any room or choice to say if something is good or bad. . . . They used to beat up children, now they show them paintings."
