In the museum

Where some people prefer their subversive art..

    Superb and thought-provoking work from one of our most talented artists. I love the secrecy aspect of it and the fact that the Council have finally caught on to the work as valid to a large section of what will, I’m sure, be a new audience for this facility.

    just looks like any weird shit that an art student would come up with. big deal….
    this banksky thing seems to be more of a bandwagon ‘me too isnt he great’ crap.

  • The Raven

    You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. Bet you don’t know much about art, but you know what you like, eh?

    Yeah. Me too.

    “The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists.”

    “Bet you don’t know much about art, but you know what you like, eh?”

    well yeah, just my opinion, not claiming anything more than that. i dont know much about art, whatever there is to know?.. but things like a menacing riot policeman with Peace on his badge arent that big a deal. a student would probably come up with that sort of stuff. i think alot of banksy stuff that ive seen is all very nice and trendy, but theres a bit of a bandwagon thing where people are going on like its the greatest thing since sliced cheese! probably banksy will do a picture of a slice of cheese with people bowing down and worshiping it, and then a picture of people worshiping a picture of people worshiping a slice of cheese ! 🙂

    I suprised you’ve not done a post on the poetry season. Tonite on BBC2 we had:
    In a personal journey across the British Isles, former Catatonia singer Cerys Matthews considers the legacy of Celtic poetry. In Wales, she immerses herself in the verse of Dylan Thomas, and in Yorkshire she examines the work of Ted Hughes. She also visits Ireland to discover the inspiration behind the poetry of William Butler Yeats, and considers the enduring appeal of Scottish lyricist Robert Burns. Part of the BBC’s Poetry Season

    Incredible project which will be a massive success – will smash whatever attendance records there are in Bristol for an exhibition.
