"a wily show called "Drunk vs. Stoned," which postulated that "stoned art" is introspective, hypersensitive, detail-oriented and prone to surprise, spirals and repetition, while drunk art is outward-looking, impulsive, romantic and unafraid of messiness and sloppy emotions. Under these criteria, Expressionism is drunk; Pop is stoned. Pollock, Rauschenberg and Nan Goldin are drunk; Warhol, Johns and Cindy Sherman are stoned. "
