Episode 96: Art Pranks

Before we get started this week we wanted to remind you that Two Artsy Gals now has a Patreon account and you can become a patron you’re your favorite artsy podcast by becoming a monthly supporter! We hate doing yearly drives for listener support, but we are 100% listener supported so what doesn’t get covered by listeners comes out of Katie and Loni’s own pockets… which is sometimes hard to manage when providing free entertainment!  Please consider becoming a monthly supporter at Patreon.

We had April Fool’s Day on our minds this week so The Gals decided to do an episode on art pranks. They cover some famous art pranks, some classic art pranks, and some simple but fun ways you can use art to prank the world around you.

To listen to this episode click here.

Check out the Pintrest board for this episode here.

Katie and Loni covered a lot of fun things in this episode so we are just going to provide you some links where you can read more about all of the pranks and ideas they touched on.

The Wikipedia page about Marcel Duchamp’s famous “Fountain” piece can be found here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_%28Duchamp%29

Links for the “renegade art collective” Voina are here:

(The Huffington Post article is where we found a few of our ideas so you should read/look at all of it).

And here are a couple of articles about the Nate Tate hoax done by artist William Boybe and friends:
