IT'S ART JIM BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT

I'd like to share with you some of the more perplexing pieces of modern art that I was faced with at the Museum of Modern Art in New York recently. I have a very open mind when it comes to art but this openness was seriously tested, seriously....

A stack of bricks
yes that's a stack/pile of bricks, in a rectangle, on the floor
3 squares
I guess you're supposed to project your own images into these frames yeah? I dunno.
A single shot
I was told it was there somewhere, I'm just not sure. I have 3 shots of this from different angles and I still couldn't see it.
It must be important because that guard never moved away from it
these next two I really like but I'm not sure I agree with their titles/descriptions

Kazimir Malevich
Painterly Realism of a boy with a Knapsack; 1915. Kazimir Malevich
Kazimir Malevich
Suprematist Composition: Airplane Flying. 1915 Kazimir Malevich
Pinko
a piece of pink fiberglass (I think) standing next to a wall
confused
yeah I hear ya waz, not sure myself
That said and again I'm keeping an open mind, I think the following sums it all up for me

You sure the pink fibreglass wasn't just the builders in?

Ha, possibly, but it did have a label card thingy. I've just noticed it has a ripple/line across the top half...well that changes everything ;)
