Just read a pathetic critique of the new 'Picasso and Modern British Art' exhibition in London. I haven't seen it, but wish I could, and will try to.
There is no doubt that it is ill-conceived..........so what? Seems that it may have been built on some pretty thin comparisons. Comparisons are pretty redundant in art!
BUT,............the important thing is that, you're going to see stuff you haven't had the chance to see before.......Fantastic!
It seems the job of the critic is to suck the blood out of the mother that feeds it.
Art is to be enjoyed and hopefully to make people think. My suggestion (and in particular as a teacher), is always to leave your opinions and revues at the door. Don't even bother with the head-phoned information. Just go and look. You can always read about what takes your interest later.
