I think I would take issue with this specific point. There is no such thing as pure creativity operating in a directionless space where any and all experiments however constituted must be considered equal, and artists who have produced work in this line are not especially notable for producing, as Tom Lehrer put it, "a tune the people could hum". Critical (in the old fashioned sense) feedback is not about turning the recipient into an automaton, it's about increasing the understanding of our shared culture in order that creativity that is meaningful to the audience can take place.
