If museums around the world won’t take your art, you’ve got no other choice but to force it on them, right? That’s exactly what artist Miklós Kiss did with his Golden Roach project. Here’s what he does: he smuggles in 14 carat gold plated bronze roaches to renowned museums, making them part of the exhibition room.

He also makes his way to the museum shop and smuggles roach postcards in those places as well! So far Kiss has been able to get his artwork into the Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the British Museum, MUMOK, Hamburger Bahnhof, Centre Pompidou, and even the Louvre. And while he calls his smuggling effect ‘roachy’, it’s definitely clever!
