All I can say is, Huh??
Please explain the world of professional art to me, can you? I don't get it - never did. Why are some artists so touted, while others sink into infamy? For instance, Jeff Koons - can anyone explain why he's a good sculptor?
Went to see the second half of the Cinema Effect show at the Hirschhorn today. I was completely bored by every piece. Afterwards I sat on a bench in front of the gift shop, made a (boring) video of people's feet as they walked past. But when I watched my own boring video, all I could think is that what I'd just made was at least as interesting as most of what was chosen to be part of the Hirschhorn show.
I have so many questions about the art world. Probably these questions will never be answered. Oh well. Whatever.
Stay cool, ya'all.
