Answer:

Quoting udupendra

Ref: http://wikipediaart.org/wiki/i…..ipedia_Art

A ‘conceptual artwork’ by artists Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern, where they edit Wikipedia pages in a way that makes them ‘artistic’. Of course, people over at Wikipedia, Jimbo downwards, are pissed because it messes up all that Wikipedia stands for. And the art world is pissed at Wikipedia for being such prudes and pedants.
