The Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council (aka WACTAC and featured here before) made this video, asking a “senior registration technician” to pull his top five pieces from the permanent collection that are so obscure they “need to be identified as art” by experts such as himself. Do with that concept what you will in the comments. I am sharing this here because one of the pieces he selects is a sealed cardboard box labeled “trash”.
I have to admit—sheepishly and ducking for cover—that I kind of dig Yoko Ono’s piece as well. Despite breaking up the Beatles, I’ve always had a soft spot for her due to the urban legend that she donated money to my college to ensure ice cream be made available at every meal.
