Dewey's Aesthetics (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Suspended Reason

Many writers complain that Dewey showed little interest in the avant-garde art of his time (for example, Eldridge 2010). It is true that neither Cubism, Dadaism nor Surrealism play a role in his writing, and his theory seems to actually preclude Non-objective painting (Jacobson 1960), although he does speak positively of abstract art.
