Art as experience

I've started to read 'art as experience' by John Dewey, who I believe is/was a philospher. It's all about how only the experience of the viewer makes something art, and how aesthetics work. This is the first line;

"By one of the ironic perversities that often attend the course of affairs, the existence of the works of art upon which formation of an aesthetic theory depends has become an obstruction to theory about them."
