The Week contest: Blank art

This week's question: A Danish artist who was given $83,000 by a museum to use in an artwork pocketed the cash and submitted two blank canvases titled Take the Money and Run. "The breach of contract is part of the work,'' explained artist Jens Haaning. If a museum were to put on a show of blank canvases by modern artists, what title could it give the exhibition?
