thomas struth@whitechapel art gallery

big photos of kinda interesting stuff like people looking at pictures in galleries. At the opening some protestors had put some foul smelling shit in the govt collections section, which was novel, wonder what they are pissed off at, certainly not struth. These deadpan c types or whatever have become...

Vyner Street the new Cork Street

V Street has become even worse than C street. Crap galleries with shitty shows with pricelists and names like newExhibit or Britarse and exhibitions of the erotic or street art whatever, it has crashed faster than the greek economy, and poor old anthony wilkinson has his white elephant stuck on Naff...

Alice NEel @victoriamiro gallery

Neel is not bad, gets a distinct likness, a look and a time captured in paint. There is some joy in the scruffy surfaces. But they are not super extraordinary and if you saw a couple in a market, you wouldnt part with 500 quid for one. They are exceptional because we see part of the figurative tradi...

http://www.ravenrow.org/ Kennard at the off is uninspriring, makes you think ah photo montage John Heartfield circa 1932...

A sort of Night to the mind @ Arch 402 gallery

Contemporary painting. Uninspiring phrase. Usually a jumble of styles, paintings of images of abstract and figurative painting of the 20th century mashed up with a twist. E.G. Mondrian but in camouflage, or late Picasso but without the dying energy. Stuck in a fun house of images, the contemporary p...

Shoreditch Gallery Roundup

People ask why are these reviews so aggressive and negative. I guess it's just I walk into a gallery and the art is really depressing. I know the artists are trying, I know the galleries put a lot of effort in (sometimes). But if we don't say how we feel about art then what's the point. I want to se...

nerd art Savage Messiah @ 1 Sutton Lane Gallery

Below is the blurb quoted in full. There were a few good things in the show. The rest is middle aged people in fashionably unfashionable 80s clothes, standing around with their backs to a bunch of stuff in a case, all connected round some pretentious premise. Sort of as cool as can be, and as dull a...

Paul Graham @ The Whitechapel Gallery London

Morgan Fisher: Films and Paintings @ Raven Row

http://www.ravenrow.org/current/ Nice space. You just feel isnt this boring. I mean the problem with contemporary art is that the nerds took over.

BP Portrait Award 2011 National Portrait Gallery

Polluting slick of oilpaint. No need to seem them in real life if you've ever seen a BP before. The pre-rif-raff one is acutely exceptionally bad.

Anselm Kiefer @ White Cube Gallery London England

WC and AK have been crap recently, one crassly emptily commercial and not even sexy, the other overblown used up samo, exchange epithets as you will. But lo and behold let there be light. Or as in the cube, turn the lights off, and let the painting glow through the murk of spring daylight filtered t...

Phillip King @ flowers east gallery london

A survey through 50 years. Every show at flowers is guaranteed mediocre. There was one nice scupture at the front. What's wrong with art that's not great? That is well made, thoughtful blah blah blah. I'd rather see a student mess than an RA's nice stuff. http://www.flowersgalleries.com/exhibitions/...

Re: Art mags.

Art MAgs are shit and nigh on unreadable. Best general clever mags are New Yorker and New York Review of books. You will learn more and get more pleasure with either... and no neither are about New York primarily.

The stez's career is schizo. He's gone from being well loved moustached royal college tutor in humanities to wildly sucessful international superstar artist. Huh? Hope for all us losers, I guess.
