There is a school of thought that if it isn't aggressively ugly it is mere decoration at best. :coolspecs:

Oooh.

This. Is. Art.

The Pathetic Journey of ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz
National Review
... Seeking to keep her notoriety alive, she has created a “performance art” piece in which she is tied up in her scanties, hoisted in the air, and beaten for the amusement and edification of spectators. We’ll spare you the pictures. Suffice it to say that if they depicted your daughter, your first thought probably would not be, “My little girl is so empowered.” ...
The article is somewhat unsympathetic, but that certainly doesn't mean it isn't art.

It is so-o-o-o-o-o art.

She has a degree in art from Columbia University.

Wikipedia wrote:My Bed is a work by the British artist Tracey Emin. First created in 1998, it was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1999 as one of the shortlisted works for the Turner Prize. It consisted of her bed with bedroom objects in an abject state, and gained much media attention. Although it did not win the prize, its notoriety has persisted.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Bed

Seen it (or a reconstruction?) in Bern – way more disgusting than on this picture.

The funny part:
My Bed was bought by Charles Saatchi for £150,000 and displayed as part of the first exhibition when the Saatchi Gallery opened its new premises at County Hall, London (which it has now vacated). Saatchi also installed the bed in a dedicated room in his own home.

Probably NSFW of course

As far as whether it is art, sure. Just not very original art. It's mild bondage/public humiliation fetish porn and you can find many more like it on pornhub.

And it's all Trump's fault!
Two years after "Mattress Performance," Emma Sulkowicz continues to provoke. Her most recent piece, in which she was bound, berated, and hung from the ceiling, tackles the question of the value of art under the Trump administration.

Apparently the audience wasn't made aware of what sort of performance they were going to witness.
Weeks before, she had disclosed to me that Master Avery was her close friend and a trained professional dominatrix. No one else in the room seemed to know this. While Sulkowicz was tied up during the performance, a distraught audience member walked over to her to ask if she wanted to be untied. Master Avery, noticing this, leaned over to say something to the concerned viewer, and they walked away.

Later, I ran into the concerned viewer in line for the bathroom. They told me that they had just come from a workshop on combating gender violence, and added that there should have been a trigger warning before Sulkowicz's performance. But the viewer was left perturbed and questioning what it meant to be an unsuspecting spectator to such violence against women, taking their time to enunciate and practically spit out the word "violence."

She's not a fan of Jackson Pollack
"Historically, performance art has been a very important medium for women of color and queer people," said Sulkowicz. "There's an accessibility to it, it's the only art form that doesn't cost money. Then there's also that women, people of color, queer people, we live embodied histories."


"My body already carries material in it just because of the way I look, it's embedded in my skin," Sulkowicz explained. "White men have the privilege of entire institutions built for their paintings... These paintings are very often abstract. You have people like Pollock splattering a bunch of shit and then saying it's art. It doesn't say anything political and in fact, that actual political statement it does say is: 'I'm a white man and I can do whatever the fuck I want and make a ton of money off of it.'"

I've not been a fan of Pollock, but I might change my mind now.

Aha!

THAT'S what I don't like about Jackson Pollock's work.

It is hetero normative. :lmao:

I think we should consider the original intent of Walt Disney when presenting Mickey Mouse like that.

I wonder why she took such old stuff (from ~ 80 years ago) for a scarecrow. :?

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
