    Some of the most challenging contemporary artists cast the act of reassessment as a gesture of seizure. Perhaps, paradoxically, this tactic comes closer to the “truth” of the avant-garde than does its historicist contextualization. Or, to put it in another way, the intensity of this hijacking gesture effectively displaces the avant-garde from its prior and proper hermeneutic context.[Richard] Pettibone is a pioneer of appropriation art, yet unlike other artists of his generation who have denounced the pursuit of the ideal form, he has unapologetically extolled it.R. Marcocci, “The Anti-Historicist Approach,” Art Journal, Summer 2000, pp. 19-20
