Most explanations that they give their "art" consists of "it has a more spiritual meaning and if you don't understand then you're not civilized enough"
User avatar #11 to #3 - hudis (06/28/2013) [-]
As an artist, I don't think that's an unreasonable explanation. The mundanity of the two objects together does make for a disturbing, anxiety-inducing combination, which seems to be the desired effect.
User avatar #21 to #11 - spyrothehedgehog (06/28/2013) [-]
That may be true, but I personally think that there's not enough effort put into this for it to be in a museum
User avatar #24 to #21 - hudis (06/28/2013) [-]
Art is never about effort, though, but I understand that different people have different opinions on that. Personally, I don't see anything extraordinary about a beautiful portrait or depiction of a battle from the 18th century - anyone with a bit of talent can learn to paint like that with enough 'effort' - but I can appreciate art with more subliminal and implied meaning. It's much more personal.
User avatar #27 to #24 - spyrothehedgehog (06/28/2013) [-]
Yeah, I can see what you mean. Art is for the artist
User avatar #144 to #27 - delphine (06/28/2013) [-]
News Flash: Art is for the artist, unless you want to actually make a living making art. Then art is for your clients and if you want to make a living you need to create things that people will actually want to purchase and display. Not many people want to buy a hairy cheese to display on their mantle.

Dude, it's ******* hair on cheese. If you see more than that you must have paid much for what you're smoking. I understand the artist meant something deeper. But seriously? ******* hair on cheese. That ****** gross.

I can relate.

I got my results and I only got a pass, which is the 'lowest' form for passing, merit is the pretty good, distinction is literally off the charts amazing.
The girl next to me who did some light pencil scribbles on paper and hung some black canvases, I **** you not. She got a distinction.

Picture related: the **** that got her a amazing grade, I just don't get it
#47 to #15 - ColorfulPenguin (06/28/2013) [-]
Let me clarify:
First thing: Your pic is upside down.
Second, it's a motive there. It's a shepher girl with a ram at the bottom of a ravine while someone climbs up from it. There's some kind of deeper motive or something there.
Thirdly, it's a recognizable style. It's also a difficult one, which is a single-line PEN, meaning it's non-erasable (I assume she didn't use a pen eraser)

Fourth, though it's sometimes hard to see why art teachers call things good, it's rarely called good without reason. Though there are bad art teachers who got little idea what's good and not, most of them got some clue as to what they're doing.

Pic related, it's spun upside down and the objects made clearer (Though I'm not going to perfectly recreate it. Both because I can't and I won't bother).

It's art, you shouldn't trust a school that uses "passing, merit, or distinction" as grades. **** man, how the **** would you use that in an interview.

My uncle went to art school and he said the only thing they taught him was that schools like money.

While i'm not saying that this particular **** is good, you have to take context into consideration. These pieces were in protest of soviet russia outlawing all but realism in art.

I took an art history class last year and learned about some early modern art. One that tipped me over the edge is called The Fountain, and it's a urinal flipped onto its back. You know what my book said about it? It said it was REVOLUTIONARY. It was so important that when it got lost they made a replica.
User avatar #16 to #8 - jefglv (06/28/2013) [-]
It was simply his way of saying art doesn't need to be a pretty picture, well and what better way to say that.... he was a bit of a troll.
#9 to #8 - Crimeater (06/28/2013) [-]
Duchamps Fountain, although not requiring huge amounts of talent was pretty revolutionary, as no one at that time was doing anything of the sort, whereas the picture OP posted is a hairy cheese.
User avatar #10 to #9 - mewcubed (06/28/2013) [-]
I know that, but it's still just a urinal with his name painted on it...
User avatar #12 to #8 - jefglv (06/28/2013) [-]
Dude, it's Marcel Duchamp.... the piece changed art forever. Though it might not be great, you can't argue it's not revolutionary.
#121 to #8 - anon (06/28/2013) [-]
It was considered revolutionary because it set the foundation for the Dada movement, it was one of the first art pieces to really mock art culture in general. The piece may not take artistic talent, but it does make the viewer feel something. even if all you feel is outrage over the fact that a urinal made it into a museum it is still a success.

Mhm. There was an episode where the doctor went back in time to van gogh. (btw i dont quite remember all of it) after all this **** about how this monster is invisible and only he can see it. through the whole episode he would say how his artwork is **** etc... near the end, they took him to the present day to a museum so he can hear what people actually thinks about his artwork. He cries tears of joy. the end.

Watching it now. While bill nighy can really bring someone's spirits up with that kind of flattery.
I can't help but think that's a slippery slope. In anycase they don't wipe his memory of this event. What if he doesn't aspire to all he can be because he already knows how much he had been? Ruining the timeline cause he gets lazy.
