Avid post-modernists that we are, we enjoy seeing high art dragged through the gutter occasionally. Or at least tagged with a cunning one-liner now and then. Perhaps we could dub Marcel Duchamp the inventor of the world’s first meme when he scribbled a moustache above the lip of the Mona Lisa? The pen is now in the hands of anti-artists even less afraid to make a mess of ‘important’ things. Case in point: the folk behind wtf renaissance. Visit their Tumblr page and relish the nerve and inanity of it all. Antonino Tati
‘wtfrenaissance’ is also on exhibition at the Lithuanian Club in North Melbourne until October 3.
