Folks refer to this fellow as the Japanese Warhol, but did Warhol ever depict a badass anime guy with spikey hair whipping the semen coming from his member into skillful lasso with a triumphant expression on his face? I think not. 1998.

Sculptor Antony Gormley fills huge spaces with tens of thousands of tiny terracotta people on the floor. At first you feel ovewhelmed and touched by the sublime and humble representation of a whole nation's population. As soon as that fades you get the irresistible urge TO SMASH! 1991.

Chris Burden was supposed to deliver a lecture at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago today but it was canceled. Boo. Many have speculated the cancellation to be a new performance entitled "Not Showing Up (2007)", but in fact it was because of inclement Chicago weather.

"Body Artist" Orlan (one name) made a slot machine that looked like her (nude) body and placed herself behind it. Folks could but 5 francs into the slot at the top and it would drop into a little pile of coins where her crotch would be. As a reward she gave the viewer a nice smooch. Later she would give up public smooching and instead turn to public presentation of her own surgeries. 1976.
