Rodcorp: London Art fairs in October 2008

Thanks Rod, interesting. The only exhibition I’ve been to recently was the ICA Auction exhibition… so much of it, for me, wasn’t aesthetically pleasing and didn’t look particularly technically challenging to produce. So I’m left with the knowledge that presumably the artist is trying to communicate or explore some idea, but I can very rarely guess with the remotest confidence what that might be. So I get bored and grumpy, feel stupid, and vow not to go to another exhibition for some time.

At the other end of the spectrum, I went to the Pompidou centre over the summer and loved the early twentieth century stuff. I’m not sure if this is because I’ve learned what they were trying to do, or because it’s clearer what they were trying to do, or because they created “nicer looking” art, or because it’s old and it’s in the Pompidou and therefore it must be Good.
