Millie Brown: Puking Up Great Art

MartinaSpetlovaMillieBrownPIs it disgusting? Is it genius? A metaphor for the artistic process or our consumerist society? I’m not sure how I feel about the art world’s vomit trend, but I’m not leaning too close to look at the paintings. AMY&PINK writes:

In the name of cre­ation, the New York per­for­mance artist Mil­lie Brown throws up in her lat­est pro­ject “Nexus vom­it­ing” in all col­ors of the rain­bow on white screens, while the opera singers Pa­tri­cia Ham­mond and Zita Syme sup­port her with an acoustic per­for­mances and men­tally pre­pare her for the phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal bur­den. So styl­ish and an­gelic only a few humans can vomit.

  1. I used to do this until someone told me that it was possible to apply colors directly to the canvas.

    For me, no.

    Having said that, I still support her.

    But no.

    Well it appears that our society has reached the Pinnacle of Pointlessness.

    From here on in the only way is up.

    Society itself holds the power to create a Reality Shift.

    We could have a Collective Non Consumption day.

    By  acting together and buying nothing at all  for just one day would send a message.

    It would show us where the true power lies.

    If we wish for change then one small act undertaken by us all will start our reality shift.

    Support Collective Non Consumption day

    Support the future of your species and its evolution.

    I noticed that she doesn’t seem to have much of a gag reflex…Now if she really wants to be truly contraversial; she should be squirting different colours out of both ends simultaneously.

  26. Oh and I’m sure it takes a lot to impress you, Will. 

  27. The New Jackson Pollack.  What a fucking hack.  This is not art.  It has no developed vision, no goal, no skill required.  I could this.  It’s shit.
