When I posted before it was, as you will have doubtless realised, rather tongue in cheek. But - and you just couldn't make this up - the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art has an exhibition that "questions the value and function of cultural institutions" (no - me neither)
It is - a room with nothing in it. The artist is displaying an empty room in a show entitled "This Exhibiton Has Been Cancelled". Visitors wander through the empty space, doubtless imagining their own artistic displays/projects.
Apparently, this exhibition removes what would traditionally be considered an art object. Instead, they are presenting the gallery as an empty apace, "giving us a moment to question the value in turning over exhibition after exhibition after exhibition".
Today Glasgow. Tomorrow (well, next year) Chelsea?
Tongue still firmly in cheek - but falling about laughing!
