I suppose a reason is that this ultra modern art pretty much all looks the same and a lot of it is indistinguishable from random brushstrokes like those a chimp or young child would make. It's not really my cup of tea.

I beleive they asked them both, identification and preference.

Though if a monkey can make something indistinguishable from modern art, that implies that modern art simply isn't art. As everyone knows that humans are the only primates that create art :whistle:
