    meaning

    It also says that anything can be an installation so long as it has art status conferred on it, so the flashing fluorescent tube in your kitchen is not art because it hasn't got the nod from the gallary. Will you please tell me the meaning of this part?
    Thanks

    "so long as it has art status conferred on it" - if certain people think it qualifies as art
    "got the nod from the gallery" - art critics don't think of it as art

    "Anything can be an installation providing some art gallery has decided to call it art."
