Why Do People Think Conceptual Artists Are Really Just Goldbrickers Working A Con?

It's a mystery.

This gentleman's latest work of 'art:' he takes bites out of McDonald's cheeseburgers, rewraps them, then bicycles around NYC and throws them to people.

Hill said he didn't want to do the project in Harlem, where he lives, because he felt throwing burgers in a lower-income neighborhood would have different connotations than doing it on the Upper East Side, which is home to among New York City's wealthiest zip codes.

Emphasis me. I have an opinion, but feel inhibited about sharing it because I'm not really qualified to be an art critic. So let's call call in a famous professional and see what she says.

" 'Different connotations,' oh, my, yes! This work of performance art, re-contextualized within the Harlem archetype, instead of the one where he's merely throwing ruined food at wealthy people, would now connote a situation in which his bike is chased down by an angry mob and he is getting his lazy hipster ass beaten to a pulp."


Yes. Okay. Thanks, Sister Wendy. That's about what we all thought.

Thanks to scott.
