I Could Do That

Cranks who enjoy denigrating modern art will have a field day with Ping-Pong Diplomacy, a new display at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. The massive installation is willfully ugly and deliberately absurd. Illuminated partitions surround a shanty town-like wooden structure. A ping pong table- yes, go ahead and play a game- is the centerpiece. Just for good measure, plants are growing underneath and atop the primary structure. Ridiculous! I like it; just don’t ask me what it means.
