The #ArtSelfie: Because You Didn’t See Art Unless You Took a Photo of Yourself Next to It

Somewhere along its short road, Brian Droitcour’s Instagram meme ran away from him.

No longer were art-interested young’uns introspectively capturing their own reflections in the mirrored surfaces of artworks as intended. Instead, at some point, it all morphed into a well-groomed myriad of mugging and middle-finger flashing on DIS Magazine.

Sometimes, they even forget to put the art behind them. The fuck?

Where did it all go wrong? What happened? Miami? The Eminem #artselfie? The natural order of the internet?

Y’all doing it wrong anyway, pffft.

 Very vintage #artselfie of the Gao Brothers at the Ace Museum in LA, by yours truly.
