Nice space. You just feel isnt this boring. I mean the problem with contemporary art is that the nerds took over. Before now you had Picasso, Pollock, Warhol, Emin, Damien Hirst. Now you have people doing stuff about how wide film is and why and going on about it like you're interested, and sticking a bit of hard board to the wall, and doing a twee little painting which isnt about painting. And Raven Row shows it all off beautifully, like you are going to see the sistine chapel, crossed with Giotto and the lost ark of the covenant. The thing is I think curators like Nerd art because it gives them something to do and talk about and write long essays full of long words about. The best thing for curators about nerd art is that it doesn't make them feel like losers who can't paint. Show reminds me a bit of Chistian Marclay crossed with Ian Kiaer but more boring.

I sense some disappointment.
