Bold!

The incident in Munich uncovered this week followed a similar discovery in October at a museum in the western city of Bonn, where someone had hung their own artwork in an exhibition on identity and immigration. It was only when that exhibition was being dismantled that the painting was noticed.

damn, i loved Sister Wendy! she could be so funny, and sharp. one of my favorite of her discussions was on a particularly famous portrait of a young ballerina and the artist, of whom she said with much disdain, “i don’t like you, Mr. Degas”!

“A Sunday on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” Georges Seurat

While the original painting was a groundbreaking work of pointillism, this piece pushes the use of emojis as modern hieroglyphs to its breaking point. Broomsticks become a pristine row of trees as broccoli forms a lush canopy overhead. A child dons a lab coat; his mother wears a bucket for a hat as two nonbinary bunny boys approach behind them. In the foreground, a dog and a monkey play beside a woman with an impressive bustle. Did you know there was a monkey in this painting? The artist did not.

I bought probably 500,000 CDs from eBay. The sculptures in this show include 200,000 to 250,000 CDs.
