Man trolls the art world with a pair of sunnies and a watch

But is it art?


Could you tell the difference between this and an art exhibit?

Abstract art is a hard thing to grasp, and no-one wants to be the one guy that doesn’t ‘get’ an exhibition – especially if it just looks like somebody has dropped their sunnies on the floor.

Which is precisely what one joker gambled on when he trolled an art gallery with a pair of sunnies and a wrist watch.

Twitter user @jackdudeham put his possessions down in the corner of the Dallas Museum of Art – and gallery-goers were hoodwinked into thinking it was a legit piece of art.

But wait: if they think it was art, does that now mean it’s art?
