Rate or Hate: Art Edition

Rate or Hate: Art Edition


Interpretive dance. I’m not being ironic, I literally rate that shit as art. 

That ‘Norman For You’ episode called Dumb Starbucks that people thought might be a Banksy installation before the episode aired. 

The girl flatmates’ art and wine nights. I am not being sexist it’s just a beautiful female bonding experience. 

Landscape photography. It gives me the biggest wanderlust EVER and some places are simply so beautiful. (Climate change chimes in like “unless…. hahahah???”)

The music industry evolving to accept teenage girls as reliable critics! Not only are they drivers of the commercial industry, we also just feel things SO hard! 



People who say “I could do that” about abstract art… Well then fuckin do it pisshead!!! Oh wait you can’t! 

People who romanticise Van Gogh drinking paint :(( He was ILL it is SAD. however he did truly love that chick he cut his ear off for. 

Dead animals in paintings. No one rates paintings of dead PEOPLE!!!! 

The majority of mainstream historical art being just dead white men. I am bored of that! 

I’m sorry I have to say it… Otago’s Art History department ;( RIP
