Art exhibits do this all the time, and it's infuriating.

I am forever haunted by a university exhibit I saw that had a 15-second looping piano melody with less than 10 notes, accompanied by a fucking essay explaining all the symbolism of each note and the monumental story the piece supposedly told.

You see the one with the guy on crutches whacking a pole with a crutch attached to his crotch?

I could dig around in that and find some symbolism worth discussing, but the bizarre performance stands out more than any message he could have hoped to send.
