Would it even be possible to deliberately organize an art exhibition dedicated to "bad art"?

I know that there have been exhibitions in the past which became legendary for the bad quality of their art, but in those cases that was not the stated intention, being instead attempts at exhibiting good art which failed spectacularly.

In openly declaring an exhibit to consist of bad art on the contrary, there is something of a paradox since the act of exhibiting art involves an implicit claim that the art is, for some reason, worth looking at, whereas bad art by definition would be those art works which are not worth looking at.

So the question would be, would it be possible somehow to reconcile these two contradictory claims and thereby organize an exhibition that openly declares itself dedicated to art which is bad, and if so how?
