I once visited the Tate Modern after an epic night of drinking and threw up in one of their toilets.

Yes, but is it (f)art?


Sorry.

I've always wanted to sharpie one of them, "R Mutt".

I emailed them a picture. Just doing my part. For art.

most all of the north american ones are pretty bad. I really like the urinal at the Museum of Photography, Tokyo

Either that's a really avant-garde urinal, or it's a squat toilet.

Fun Fact: Brian Eno claims to have actually peed in Duchamp's Fountain when it was on display at MOMA by inserting a tube into the display case and positioning it over his dick. It's one of those probably-made-up stories that I really want to be true.

Maybe because there isn't a "Toronto Art Museum."

noriyori, that "urinal" at the Museum of Photography, Tokyo is a Japanese-style toilet made for pooping. I've had a few bad experiences with those...

How could they miss the washrooms at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center? (Yes, that Kohler, which also sponsors the Kohler Foundation.) Here's my favorite, from this page (from another web site with photos of various museum restrooms).
