A Piece of Work

Hannibal Buress Really Wants to Touch the Art

av A Piece of Work | Publicerades 7/10/2017

Does art have to be beautiful, or can everyday stuff be made into art too? Abbi Jacobson brings her friend comedian Hannibal Buress to look at sculptures by Dada and Surrealist artists, who upended the definition of what art could be. Marcel Duchamp and Meret Oppenheim were basically trolling the art world — and the work they made is really funny.

Also featuring: Ann Temkin and Anne Umland
