Sleeping Beauty, remixed

In literature, performance, pop culture on 09/2012 at 4:58 am

A blogger claims Lady Gaga’s performance at Guggeheim “copied” Polataiko’s “Sleeping Beauty” art piece.  In an interview, Poltaiko said that Gaga’s piece is “as far from my concept as it can possibly be,”  and that:

when pop culture appropriates the work of an artist, there’s nothing left to think about. […] It vulgarizes the beauty and the gentle complexity of art. It dumbs it down.

There was no mention of the Grimm Brothers’  Sleeping Beauty.
