This project is a result of a collection of overheard statements about the art and observations gathered during my time working at the vmfa. I’m interested in the humor behind taking statements like this out of their original context and in bringing a satirical tone to the world of art museums, which I believe often take themselves too seriously and in doing so can often make art feel inaccessible.

The bottom line is:
Putting the power into the hands of visitors of the museum and reimagining the descriptions of art based directly on overheard snippets of conversation.
