Is this the world’s dullest gallery? Photographs show examiners grading a staggering 15,000 pieces of art featuring just THREE subjects
Inside a huge exhibition space in Taiyuan, northern china, 15,000 works of art are neatly laid out on the ground in what’s perhaps the biggest gallery in the world.
It’s perhaps also the dullest gallery that the 18 visitors inside will ever visit as there are just three different subjects featured in the entire collection.
But in reality, the creations were part of a practice exam for the local art school according to People’s Daily, and the visitors have to look at every single one in detail to grade them.
The artworks, created by 5,000 students from dozens of different local arts schools, were neatly lined up on the floor of China (Taiyuan) Coal Exchange Centre on November 5.
The images have attracted wide discussion on Weibo, China’s micro-blogging platform.
One user commented: ‘Seeing these photos, I can feel the pressure and brutality of exams.’
Another user wondered if the markers are able to make a fair judgement, saying: ‘The markers will only take a two-second glance on your pictures.’
One person even wrote: ‘It’s 99 percent a matter of luck.’
