If you haven’t been living under a rock or in a place without wi-fi for the past two weeks, you know that the proverbial shit has hit the proverbial fan in the art world. From cases of censorship to the forced alteration of several exhibitions, it’s definitely been a good month for news, if not for art and artists. To commemorate the art world apocalypse, Hyperallergic has designed some t-shirts just to keep everyone up to date on our favorite museums’ antics. Things can only plummet into oblivion look up from here, folks.

Whether it’s greeting the onrush of the second culture wars with January’s political re-shuffling or just showing your savvy to fellow gallery opening attendees, we’ve got your back. And front. And the sides of your torso as well. Whichever art institution jumps the formaldehyde-preserved shark in a tank next, you can be sure you’ll hear about it here. Institutional critique this, motherfuckers!





NOTE: These shirts are not real. Would you like them to be? Get in touch at Kyle [at] Hyperallergic.com. You can totally buy a real live t-shirt here, though.
