The Tumblog’s premise is simple and title explains it well: Great Art in Ugly Rooms. Masterpieces are brought out of the museums and galleries then digitally moved into rooms ranging from boring to horrid.  While nothing changes about the work itself, something is certainly different.  Perhaps it underscores the oft underestimated importance of a stark gallery setting.  Maybe it reveals that beauty is superfluous in the makeup of a masterpiece.  It can be that the juxtaposition between the ultra high priced pieces and their economically humble setting is in itself jarring.  Regardless, this initially funny blog presents some serious questions about art and its context.
