Is this Art?

Marcel Duchamp was a pioneer of Dada, this was a movement that questioned long-held assumptions about what art should be, and how it should be made. Duchamp argued, “An ordinary object [could be] elevated to the dignity of a work of art by the mere choice of an artist.” I agree with this artist, because any object or piece of work can be art, because there are no standards to the definition of "art." I think there is beauty in everything, and an object or setting does not need to be glorified for it to be granted the title of "art."
