Our Mission Statement
As the internet's preeminent site for interactive, democratic art appreciation, Infinite Art Tournament frees great art from the straitjackets of chronology and categorical conventions in order to put it in a new straitjacket of its own devising. The IAT further seeks to delight its community of creative, bracingly intelligent, and drop-dead sexy readers with glib but cheerful dispatches from the worlds of literature, film, the visual arts, music, chemistry, Shakespeare, postal ephemera, vexillology, and hagiography. College football rarely comes up.
