What Good Are The Arts? is a 2005 book by John Carey.

PremiseEdit

The book argues that amongst other media, the role of painting has largely been superceded by newer forms of art, like Tracy Emin's "Bed". This Carey sees as a last stand by modern artists to salvage High Art from the cultural mass media of soap operas and video games.
