gold toilet, and a bouquet de merde

 

President Trump asked the Guggenheim to loan out a van Gogh for his private quarters and was offered Maurizio Cattelan’s golden toilet instead; Artists and prominent cultural personalities unite in Paris to reject Jeff Koon’s atrocity of a “gift” to the city.
