wonderfully stated. @The Butt: I understand how art is supposed to be provoking, but when someone shits on a plate and it gets put in a museum such as the Modern Museum of Art in New York City, I think that's just going too far. It's undermining the whole concept of art. That particular museum is filled with stuff like that and I was so disappointed when I was looking at the exhibitions, to see that this is what art has become. the majority of works there lack any artistic value whatsoever; it's as if someone can just take a paint brush and splatter random dots on the canvas, and voila, it's art. all this "abstract" art isn't abstract at all. It's either drug-influenced or just sloppy shit that has failed to be what the artist's first intention was. So they resort to making this type of "art" instead. sad.
