I DON'T GET ART
"I'm sick of pretending: I don't get art," says art critic/artist Glen Coco in a photo essay (with captions) splaying open the Tracey Emin retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London.
Here's a sample: Are you fucking kidding me? Just in case you can't tell from the picture, this is a photo of Tracey rubbing money against her vagina. Which people are going to pay money to look at. That's like a Zoolander joke that the writers rejected for being "a bit transparent".
Littered with profanity and spiced with ridicule (at the gallery goers, art collectors and nonsense concerning the important artworks), Glen Coco's art criticism is attracting some randy comments, too, many as interesting as the critiques.
