40 Unusual Art Exhibits

 - Dec 8, 2008
Art exhibitions are meant to showcase an artist’s work while simultaneously inspiring thought, provoking emotion and inducing awe. The unusual art exhibits in the slideshow below accomplish this task in spades.

For example, street artist Banksy’s "Crude Oils" exhibition featured live rats running amok in his gallery, a visceral social statement about the place of humans in modern society. And a trip to the ‘Meat After Meat Joy’ exhibit might either make you hungry or sick to your stomach depending on your views of eating meat.

From the bizarre and controversial to the fantastic and truly inspirational, these unusual art exhibitions will thrill any fan of the humanities.
