I live near a metro area in which they always have exhibits of artists at the school nearby that are "controversial"... as in, trying to get publicity for themselves. One year it was an American Flag laid on the ground, another year it was a portrait of the city's mayor in lingerie... you get the point.
Also, don't really care much for the imagist school.
I went to a warhol exhibit years ago, expected to not like it much, was a very good exhibit once you see all his work in one place you kind of "get it".

Just an fyi...from the Museum of Bad Art on the web:

'The pieces in the MOBA collection range from the work of talented artists that have gone awry to works of exuberant, although crude, execution by artists barely in control of the brush. What they all have in common is a special quality that sets them apart in one way or another from the merely incompetent'.

Only things the artists shown there at their site aren't the 'famous' guys!

I don't think all the stuff on that MOBA site is that bad.
They are obviously done by amateurs (i hope!) that have no artistic training.

Andy Warhol turned the art world on its ear and brought about the Pop Art movement.

Yes, Picasso what a good classical artist to begin with, he began the experimentations with cubism... so at least first he did the legwork at least. That is a good horse for a nine year old, obviously in oil... what 9 yo is painting with oils? His guernica is very brilliant and full of symbolism.
