Minimalist masterpiece or 3 slabs of wood?

What’s the difference between minimalist furniture as “art” and that nondescript Ikea chair you bought for $49.99? Is it quality? The social or historical context in which it was made? The person who made it? Is there a difference at all?

See if you can tell the difference between a cheap piece of furniture and a piece by minimalist master Donald Judd in this quick quiz by Reverent Entertainment. I got 10 out of 12 right! I still don’t know how I feel about that though.
