QUIZ: Can You Tell The Difference Between Modern Art and Paintings By Toddlers?

Glen Coco has an approach to art. She wrote 11 months ago:

“You know what? I’m sick of pretending. I went to art school, wrote a dissertation called “The Elevation of Art Through Commerce: An Analysis of Charles Saatchi’s Approach to the Machinery of Art Production Using Pierre Bourdieu’s Theories of Distinction”.

I have attended art openings at least once a month for the last five years, even fucking purchased pieces of it.

The other night, after attending the opening of the new Tracey Emin retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, I’m finally ready to come out and say it: “I just don’t think I get art”.

I’m like, 99% sure that nobody’s ACTUALLY into art and it’s just some exclusive club you can only join, if you’ve got more money than interesting things to communicate to the rest of the human species. Just as nobody wanted to be the first one to go up to the Emperor and say “dude, I can see your arsehole”, nobody wants to be the one to go up to the lady in the above photograph and say “you are at least 50 years old. What the fuck are you doing?”

In 2005, ABC News asked artists and an art historian to distinguish between modern art and art by 4-year-old toddlers.

They didn’t do too well.

Do you like to give it a try?
