This is a question Pretentious bollocks

Possibly the worst event I ever went to was an evening of turntablists in London. The lights went down, the first guy put a cymbal onto a turntable, dropped the needle on it and left it making screeching noises for ten minutes.

When the lights came up, half the audience had snuck out.

What's the most pretentious rubbish you've ever been to see in the name of art?

I'm a sporadic visitor to the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow, and occasionally there's some fantastic gems in there - The David Mach exhibit was astonishing, do a google search or something.

However, the last time I ventured into the building, I came across a small church-shaped shed, on its side, painted red. Walking into this shed, I found a sideways pew, and a TV screen. Upon this screen was a naked man, sitting facing away from the screen. He was singing indeciferable hymns and had a tattoo saying "Sorrow".

I laughed so hard I smacked my head off of the door and tripped over on the way out. Smooth.
