Louis CK Ridicules Avant-Garde Art on 1990s MTV Show

In the 1990s, somewhere on his long road to stardom, Louis CK made an appearance on a satirical “Artumentary” aired by MTV. In it, CK plays the role of David Cross, a would-be artist who specializes in photographing toilets filled with ink — a not-so-subtle metaphor for the tripe that often gets passed off as avant-garde art. In case there’s any ambiguity about the underlying message, Cross add wryly, “Basically, see, MTV will show you a lot of crap, and they’ll tell you it’s art. But I show you crap, and it’s, like, art.”
