    With Cheese Grid. The Art Guys gently poke fun at the history of minimal art. The Art Guys subvert the hierarchical canons of art history and art historians. The grid is an architectural exploration of cheese. It is a way of arranging ordinary materials in formalist ways. As time progresses, the processed cheese squares become a little funky. They turn orange; begin to curl up and shrivel; release a peculiar odor and even start to sweat.
