So if the modern art community isn't a bunch of pompous aristocrats, sipping wine here at art showings , what are they?(thats my take)
EDIT: Ireiz how should I answer to this? Thanks in advance .

I would say that you are approximately between the age of 14 and 19. If you are not, and are older, then gold help your soul. My advice would be to not share your opinions to anyone on any public front.
