(Untitled) – the movie
“A fashionable contemporary art gallerist in Chelsea, New York falls for a brooding new music composer in this comic take on the state of contemporary art. Adam Goldberg (Two Days In Paris) plays the composer, whose work calls for paper crumpling, glass breaking and bucket kicking. Marley Shelton (Grindhouse) plays the gorgeous Chelsea gallerist, whose latest show features an artist, played by Vinnie Jones (Snatch), who employs taxidermy and household objects. Further complicating the affair is the composer’s brother, played by Eion Bailey (“Band of Brothers”), whose highly commercial art work – the financial backbone of the gallery – is sold to corporate clients discreetly out of the gallery’s back room.” (Synopsis of the Official Website)
I think it’s great to make fun of these things. Art is getting in hilarious spheres. Basically in my opinion contempary art is called art if someone says it’s art. You can ride a tricycle in a chicken costume and fart, record it on tape and make a infinite loop out of it, someone will still believe it’s art. And the subtitle of (Untitled) says it: “Everyone’s got an opinion.”
