Some people, who are not artists, look at today's art in museums and go "wow that's dumb" particularly to the more weird/abstract/minimalist stuff, because they don't understand all the context and meaning behind the pieces.
However I, with family active in the high art scene, look at how the pieces exist inside an insular cesspool of nepotism and rich people navel-gazing, who look down on equally poignant art in "low brow" comics, animation, unknown internet artists, and I go "wow that's dumb"
Also, even if you value art for monetary reasons, we actually made more money selling cheap queer porn zines at a porn zine art show than when selling typical paintings/sculptures. Turns out 100 poor people buying $10 comics is just as, if not more likely to happen than ONE rich white dude buying a $1000 painting. 🤷♂️
