Art as Problematic Waste

Lots of art everywhere - it can be a problem too. When an artist dies, his studio is full with old artworks and even when alive some of the works need a lot of space. Where can we put all these probably interesting works? Museums cannot and will not take it all, and you cannot sell even good art easily. At what point does art becomes waste? How might art as waste even cause an additional ecological problem: the over production of art as another form of consumerism?
