Is it art?

THE Frieze Art Fair is in full swing across London from today. Its great fun, as long as you dont take it too seriously. Treat it like some glamorous jumble sale and enjoy a jolly good rummage through the contemporary art scene.

2. If it's being displayed in a gallery, it's art
It might be good art, or bad art, but it's art.

I think Duchamp answered that question decades ago.

8. Agreed, it meets one of 3 criterion
1) The artist says it is art.
2) Experts agree that it is art.
3) And I can never remember this one....but no matter, it meets the most important of the 3.

4. A true masterpiece. It's from the Dark Ages of America.
Which will end beginning in 2006.

9. art is expression of a concept or ideal. therefore, this qualifies.
