“Comedian” – Maurizio Cattelan

This singular story contains two headlines: first, that an artist taped a banana to a wall, entitled it “Comedian,” then sold the piece for $120,000; second, that someone subsequently ate the banana. Talk about a-peel-ing! In all seriousness, I admire these feats of artistry which challenge the very idea of art, and this serves as an entertaining example of pubic interaction with art, whether intended by the artist or not.
