When was the last time you went to an art museum?

I'm thinking it's been about a year.

    Oh gee. It's been too long. I don't remember. Does art gallery count too?

    A gallery is a bit different, I'm thinking there's more historical period pieces in an art museum. I'm not trying to guilt anyone here, just curious.

    The reason I said it that way was because I don't want to assume all galleries are contemporary, and may have some classical pieces. Also, a contemporary art museum may be light on history.

    Okay, and I need a report; what you liked the best, what you liked the least, and what you're going to do different the next time

    Results will depend on which museum, and if I've been there before. :-)

    Not sure, I think it's a good idea once in a while.

    I used to go a lot, I remember I started going while trying to understand modern art. But then I got the "internets".

    Maybe you weren't with the right people, at least with someone who is knowledgeable, can explain things, and make it fun!

    Possibly,  it was a really snoody modern art exhibit and was full of pretentious crap.   One of the exhibits was nothing more than some chick who smeared her menses all over a canvas.  Another was a keyboard with it's keys replaced with Legos.   While garbage these were the two most memorable things there.
    Worst $30 I ever spent.

    That's funny. Modern art is probably not a good choice unless you're really into it.

    the things we put ourselves through for the pleasure of our dates.

    To be honest I get the same results looking at prints as I do the actual paintings. Sculpture is a tad different though.

    Joe Rogan nails it on what passes for modern art.

    Hey, I get this perspective completely. However, think of it this way; the artists he's referring were ultimately successful. Why? Because they elicited this negativity and got him to ask the classic question; what is art?

    That old chestnut. meh.
    When did art become about cop-outs, excuses, and shallowness instead of depth, creativity, and talent?
    It's a just a circle-jerk for self-indulgent hipsters to feel exclusive.

    About 10 years ago or more. Tate Modern, London's South Bank. The building, the vestibule, was more impressive than the installations. That's  when it was confirmed to me that architecture can consume it's contents.
    Worth ot though.
