A Wendy Doniger on originality in art

"That is, if everything [artisticly] good has already been done and you have kept it in your museum permanently, you have a choice of buying something good and derivative - one more still life or fruit - or something bad and new - a statue made of condoms."

(From "Finding our memories in other people's myths" in Museums and the New Pluralism edited by David Goa, Canadian Museums Association, Ottawa, 2002)
