TOP TEN PILES OF ART MOCKED BY ARTISTS AS LESSER VALUE

#1: politics of trash/your opinions are worthless/because of your birth
#2: gentrified arts scenes/seen by collectors mostly/museums sometimes
#3: to be “discovered”/ - as if you didn’t exist/before they saw you
#4: to be “successful”/ - as if kickbacks justify/compromising self
#5: to be “resistant”/ - as if paralyzed by fear/was a conscious act
#6: trusting crowd-funded/trust-fundamental thinking/calling it support
#7: to be “supported”/ - as if held up for profit/is a positive
#8: to be “respected”/ - as if bigheads thinking you’re/worthwhile is worthwhile
#9: to be “remembered”/ - as if obscurity means/something lacks value
#10: ugly nobodies/make the world more beautiful/ev'ry fucking day
