Shit Show!

Once upon a time (eh, 1648), art was a very prestigious, academic endeavor. The people in charge of deciding what makes good art were the men of the Royal Academy in Paris. They liked pretty little landscapes, epic scenes of classical battles, and quaint little still lifes. ...Till the Impressionists rolled around. Cezanne, Manet, Pissarro, Whistler, and many others were rejected from the Academy salons for their experimental methods in painting.
So, they said, "F*** that Salon, let's have a shit show!"

In honor of the shit shows past,

Salon Des Refuses
