'Kim Kardashian at The Museum' Makes Fine Art Out Of Insufferable Selfies

Kim Kardashian’s book “Selfish” is ridiculous. However, using those images at a beloved museum somehow inches ever so closely to brilliance.

Mashable and The Huffington Post direct your attention to a corner of Tumblr that is currently painting masterpieces with Crayon, figuratively speaking.

It seems Sid Lee’s Cecilia Azcarate and Heather Brodie got their hands on Kardashian’s new book and went around snapping off pictures with it at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The results certainly won’t change the course of human history, but it’s more riveting than a minute of reality TV.

Here is one image of “Kim K at the Museum” thanks to Sid Lee’s Twitter:

Perhaps you want more. Well, of course you do. Thinking that you wouldn’t want droves of this stuff is a silly sentiment—as stupid as compiling a bunch of selfies and putting them in a book and calling it a good day’s work.

So you can head on over to the dedicated Tumblr page that features many similar images, like this one:

As the Tumblr entry explains, this is the famed “Madonna and Child” by Francesco Granacci who created the masterpiece in about 1520.

Nearly 500 years later it’s improved (Read: violated) with a vapid look and the kind of commerce that comes with reality-TV rubbernecking.

Ah, but we aren’t art connoisseurs. What we do know is this is as much Kardashian as we can stomach. And the geniuses at Sid Lee certainly improved upon the modern practice of the selfie.
