Turning art for trick's sake

Conceptual art masquerades as prostitution in Andrea Fraser's "untitled", a 60-minute videotape of her having sex in a NY hotel room with an art collector who paid close to 20,000 dollars for having/being in this work of concept. A concept which plays in sassy terms with the idea of possession. But will the end product excite and provoke, or simply bore like some monotonous porn tape clone?
