    Context is a valid part of art, but you can’t justify modern art just because it happens to be in a gallery any more than you can discredit graffiti just because it’s not part of the art establishment.

    I wander who would win in a fight between Banksy and Andy Warhol.

    I can’t believe Girl is defending soulless postmodern art

    Seriously, it’d be so much better if people just did oil paintings like normal, self respecting artists. Preferably oil paintings of bowls of fruit, or Duchesses.

    Friends, the heart and soul of art proper can be found in a museum in Tijuana, Mexico. There, an artist can be found turning out piece after piece of famous celebrities adoringly rendered on a canvas of black velvet.

    Unless of course it’s a giant sculpture of Darth Vader and Yoda made out of butter.

    the concept that art is anything someone calls art is both stupid and beautiful.

    ranjit, you’ll notice Cat didn’t say a five year old *what.* Might’ve been a five year old shoe.

    @flake: I agree with you and want to add that I somehow like the idea of dada that anything can be art just because you decided to exhibit it.

    Very little of the world’s art is found in museum’s. Often art museums are where bad art crawls into to die.

    Cat did buy a baby several strip ago, perhaps it has been long enough for the child to be five.

    3 basketballs floating in a half full aquarium tank.

    I don’t care if it’s in a goddamn museum; it aint art.

    I think this comic was addressed well by a later comic about ego and communication; art, to be art, must be more than simply self expression; it needs to communicate some of that self to the audience.
