Banana duct taped to a wall sells for $120,000.00 at Art Basel Miami




A banana taped to a wall of an art gallery was sold for $120,000.00 this week. Three buyers at Art Basel Miami, who paid between $120,000 and $150,000 each for such pieces. And two additional artist proofs (also bananas) are going to museums.

The objective of the piece is to offer insight into how we assign worth to objects, according to the artist, Maurizio Cattelan.

Do you think lack of talent and technique and tacking on a dumb commentary to random trash has turned contemporary art into a joke, ONTD?
