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?

Artistic Twaddle at taxpayer's expense
Some chick here got a $5000 government grant to put on ten twenty minute "performances". Her performance consisted of her swinging several lengths of ribbed agricultural pipe about, so that a sound was created. She called it something like "the song of the Whirly" and it even made the paper.

Another Brisbane guy got a huge grant, made a dozen or so small pure gold "works" and hid them around the city. If people found them, all to the good. He hid them in places like wall grates, suspended from the bottoms of bins etc. He made the paper too, along with the Whirly woman, in an article about the waste of money taxpayers forked out for Student Arts Grants. Un-watermeloning-believable.
