Setting up an art display in this configuration is a bad idea

Taking selfies with art is an entire photographic subgenre unto itself. So, when an exhibition is touted as a “series of wondrous, over-the-top sets for the perfect selfie,” why wouldn’t you pull out your camera and a snap a pic for the ‘gram? This is why.

The video below was taken at a group show at The 14th Factory in Los Angeles. Around the ten second mark, you can see a woman in the upper right stoop down for her ill-fated selfie and everything goes wrong.

As Hyperallergic points out, the Los Angeles Times ran a preview of the show back in May that was headlined “Oh, the selfies you’ll make at L.A.’s 14th Factory, where the art is so social. Our Instagram tour.” That headline turned out to be all too prophetic when the disastrous destruction of all that art occurred two weeks ago. Thankfully, footage of the incident was uploaded to YouTube today and started making the rounds.

The art is pretentious enough, but whoever designed that exhibition should be embarrassed. The person must never have played with dominoes.

"Sticker price was $200,000"

Now THAT's pretentious.

Anyone else think this was a setup to make money off the insurance?
