Art so cool, you can't even see it

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | Nine artists are vying for Britain's most cutting-edge art prize -- the Beck's Futures award -- but for the expected 100,000 exhibition viewers, seeing is not only believing -- it's also optional.

Carey Young has submitted only a framed legal document declaring she is keeping her work of art secret, the London Telegraph reports.

On the white wall where Nick Crowe's entry should be, visitors see a Web site address. Some exhibits are ultra-tiny -- a photomontage of an ad hoc soccer match held in The Mall, a pygmy-sized groaning mummy clutching an empty packet of cigarettes, a video of a man apparently sewing pieces of wood to his feet and another of a man repeatedly climbing on a gatepost.

The idea is art is not necessarily beautiful -- but a creative vanguard statement by the artist.
