30 Second Selfie Rule

I love this story from Dezeen – The Broad imposes 30-second “selfie rule” at Yayoi Kusama exhibition. I sort of loathe selfies, personally, but it’s the worst when people take them in front of artworks you’d like to see. I don’t believe the paintings were intended to be background imagery for portraits, and I think you kind of completely miss the point when you turn away from the artwork to document your own face too. Waiting for folks to hurry up and finish their narcissism so you can finally view the artwork in quest is extra tedious too. I’m getting old, obviously. On the other hand, I suppose that peoples’ need to take selfies in front of famous artwork at least helps to get more bodies into art galleries, which is arguably a win for everyone?
