* ''ComicStrip/NonSequitur'': Overlapping with TrueArtIsIncomprehensible, an art critic sees an empty frame hanging in a museum and goes into a long-winded spiel about its interpretation, stuff like "art is dead" and so forth. Then a janitor comes along and hangs a sign in the frame saying "Exhibit Coming Soon".

* Parodied by ''[[TheChasersWarOnEverything The Chaser]]'', who attempted to demonstrate that it was possible to dump all kinds of junk in an art gallery without people noticing: tree clippings ("Lord of the Plants"), an old computer, a broken vacuum cleaner (unsucessfully), an old mattress (unsuccessfully, though one woman spent some time admiring it) and two garbage bags ("Fun Dip").

* ''MurphyBrown'': Eldin (Murphy's live-in housepainter) gets a show at an art gallery. At the opening people come in to find a completely empty room. They discuss whether they themselves are the art or what, but then Eldin points out that he painted a mural [[BehindTheBlack on the ceiling]].

* Inverted in one ''NobodyScores'' strip. The gang hatch a plot to steal a whole gallery's worth of Kandinsky paintings under the guise of changing the exhibit. The paintings are all replaced by works from struggling artist Beans, who envisions the heist as his big breakout moment. The public thinks the replacement paintings are all outsider art and are met with "an explosion of laughter". The event then becomes the inspiration for an Adam Sandler movie.
