The Infinite Art Tournament frees art appreciation from the straitjackets of chronology and categorical conventions in order to place it in a new straitjacket of its own devising. The IAT further seeks to delight its community of bracingly intelligent and drop-dead sexy readers with glib but cheerful dispatches from the worlds of literature, film, the visual arts, music, Shakespeare, chemistry, postal ephemera, vexillology, and hagiography.
