If Molière Walked in the MOMA...

    “Contemporary art is like a soufflé not yet cooked: if only one dared to open the oven, it would crash with no pity.”

    Two painters, shunned by an art gallery, decide to take revenge on its greedy, status-hungry owners. Based on Molière’s famed comedy “Les Precieuses Ridicules”, this hilarious yet biting satire imagines what would happen if the French playwright visited the Museum of Modern Art and found the inspiration for his latest farce. What results is an Emperor’s New Clothes for the contemporary art industry, that will make you laugh, think, and perhaps reconsider the value of a jar of pickles…
