    If eating a Corgi is art, then I sincerely hope photography is not! :D

    Not every action of a self-proclaimed 'artist' (or, in this case, 'self-publicist) is art, or even artistic - if it were there really would be sh!t on display at the Tate! :eek:

    Gilbert & George had their retrospective exhibition there (Tate modern) earlier this month. It probably contained some.... ;)

    It did if it had their mid-90s series! And let's not forget Chris Ofili!!

    I think what Peter Ustinov once said is relevant to this subject: "If Botticelli were alive today, he'd be working for Vogue."

    Eh? What situation? You mean the bricks over 30 years ago? Or the whole concept a few more eons ago?

    "Real"?! :D :D :D :D :D

    Sorry, I forgot, you're a "real" photographer eh? ;)

    I didn't intend to return to this Myk for reasons which can be deduced from my profile. Most of my degree (all those years ago) was Art History and although I can't draw for toffee I love Art (Photography is included) and so does Mrs. Radiogandy. We can't wait to go to the Royal Academy for instance. to see the enormous Hockney and the Turner Exhibition. How many of the 'Is it Art brigade' will go I wonder?

    Few Art Lovers ever pose the question "Is it Art?" - they go to galleries and study and savour. Reading in the newspapers about Carl André's 'Equivalent V111' or having a casual glance at a photograph of it conveys nothing of importance about the piece. And Marcel Duchamp (as per your pic) was making a very important and unforgettable point.

    It's been a good thread though.[​IMG]

    This link to ArtDaily might interest members. It is a free daily e-newsletter containing an uptodate summary (plus pictures) of the 'art world' including important photography exhibitions. It's home-page resources are massive and there are also some short and often fascinating videos of arty matters. I can't recommend it enough and could spend hours a day happily lost in it's pages.

    n.b. My McAfee pronounces it bug free!

    Thanks for the link, Graham, just the sort of diversion I need for when the
    feet get sore from walking around my local galleries .
