Kylie Jenner & The Lost Art

Barnett Newman, 1967. National Gallery of Canada. Sure, you could create this painting, but its location and price tag will inform us that your version isn’t art.
Half-trillion dollar da Vinci? The key is the reflection in the glass.
Damien’s dots (one of 300+ damien-dot productions).

Artistic Value Creation

Phrene’s defense entailed removing her clothes. Not recommended for traffic court.
Damien literally has a work of “art” titled “Golden Calf.” It’s a cow in formaldehyde. Sold for almost $20M. Yeah, those are more dots in the background. It is meaningless to look at such “art.” The only meaning is in buying and selling it.
A banana duct-taped to a wall was sold for $120,000 at 2019 Art Basel Miami. There is a reason why art dealers are oft referred to as “used car dealers in $5000 suits.”

Jenner after and before.

Liberman’s dots. 1950. The Met confirms that this is art.

I like them black, white, Puerto Rican, or Haitian/Like Japanese, Chinese or even Asian.”

Chingy — “Balla Baby”

“Almost drowned in her pussy, so I swam to her butt”

Lil’ Wayne — “The Motto”

And one wonders…

Duchamp as prophet. Fountain. 1917. Reproduction in the Tate. Duchamp made only one great work and a few minor ones after this and essentially spent the next four decades playing chess. His rejection wasn’t merely of art but of the entire art world, which he concluded was only worthy of being pissed on.
