Consider five conceptual artists, such as Serrano, Gonzales-Torres, Antoni, Porte, and Calle, and their art. Each of these artists received attention and notoriety. Their kind of art has been called conceptual, postmodern, avant-garde, cutting edge, or emergent. The average person looks at this artwork in bewilderment and asks, why is this art? We can ask, how should scientists think about such art? Such art poses a challenge for scientific aesthetics.
