MOMA, MOBA and now MONA

- JJ Palencar


My last post introduced visitors to the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA). In this post, we have reached a new high in artistic absurdity.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Museum of Non-Visible Art (MONA). They do however accept real cash for their ”art”.

Here is a quote from their website:

Important Note: When you contribute to this Kickstarter project, you are not buying a visible piece of art! You will not receive a painting or a film or a photograph in your mailbox. What you will receive is something even more fascinating: The opportunity to collaborate in an act of artistic creation. You will receive a title card with a description of a piece of art, as well as a letter of authentication. You may mount this card on a blank wall in your home or gallery.

One individual even purchased one of these imaginary masterpieces for ten thousand dollars.
Will someone tell the Emperor that he’s not wearing any clothes?!

Update:
Looks like the individual that purchased the imaginary art for 10K has requested and received a refund : http://youtu.be/EGIvXvJwWXI
