Art at Midnight

"After considering and dismissing a number of definitions,
Danto comes down on one that he thinks captures the
'artness of art': artworks are embodied meanings. As such,
they elicit from viewers acts of interpretation designed to
'grasp the intended meaning they embody.' " 

The New York Times —

"The critic Hilton Kramer, writing in The New Criterion
in 1987, likened Mr. Danto’s views to one of 'those
ingenious scenarios that are regularly concocted to
relieve the tedium of the seminar room and the
philosophical colloquium.' "

Sounds about right.
