    Is he saying that you don't have to be a legitimate artist to exhibit in the gallery, or was there an open invitation for anybody to post their work?
    G. K. Chesterton famously said that "Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly", though he had in mind the ordinary day to day pursuits of individuals, and I doubt even this paradox can stretch to accommodate those events.

    Frankly, I think the only one making the bold statement was the guy who was arrested.

    Such an extreme form of 1 it deserves it's own category?

    What is a "legitimate artist?"

    Anyone can do art. Some do it very badly, like the whole banana bit.

    Source: $120K Art Basel banana gets the private jet treatment


    The Art Basel Miami banana that consumed the art world even split back to New York by private jet.

    The infamous fruit pinned to the wall of gallery Perrotin’s booth with duct tape — which sold three times at the fair for between $120,000 and $150,000 — was this weekend seen taped to the outside of three BladeOne private jets taking art lovers home to New York.

    Fresh bananas, duct-taped near the aircraft door, welcomed passengers as they boarded in Miami, but we are told the funky fruit was peeled off all of the jets before wheels up.

    Meanwhile the banana titled “The Comedian,” by artist Maurizio Cattelan, was taken down early Sunday before the art fair ended as it attracted so much commotion it became a safety hazard for the surrounding art.

    Plus, on Saturday, performance artist David Datuna pulled the banana off the wall and ate it. It was replaced by the gallery, which insists the sculpture still survives.

    Bananas were not on the deck earlier in the week when Blade CEO Rob Wiesenthal hosted a lavish Art Basel bash at Faena with LionTree’s Aryeh Bourkoff. Guests included Irving Azoff, Discovery’s David Zaslav, Discovery Land’s Mike Meldman, producer Ben Silverman and photographer Jean Pigozzi.

    Fittingly, the person who did it, David Datuna, calls himself a performance artist.

    My sister does beautiful watercolours.

    These are only 2 of her many gorgeous paintings. I am blessed to own 2 of them, (not these 2 I have posted) and each of my children and Kasha have been gifted art by their auntie.

    THIS is real art!

    I have never sold any of mine. I haven't been painting much lately. I do a lot of digital art. I have a thread here.
