Here is a picture showing a few pieces by Jeremy Moon (as best as I can tell) hanging at the Albright Knox art gallery in Buffalo NY. I ask of you, are these pieces art? According to the Wikipedia entry,
Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions.
By this definition, these pieces are certainly art. My question for you is, should something like this be displayed in a gallery? And furthermore, what possible meaning could these pieces have? It seems to me that the only purpose of these pieces is to be paid. I am a cynical person, but the one in the background with the gray canvas with X's painted across it seems like something that I could do. It feels to me like an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the viewer. Like, "look at this! It is art! It means something incomprehensible now pay me!" What do you think?
