Royal Academy of Arts -- Summer Exhibition review
The Summer Exhibition isn't on for very long, so I thought I'd better go to the Royal Academy of Arts before it shut.
The most famous person I saw on display was Tracey Emin. It was called "Me Too -- Glad To Hear I'm A Happy Girl" and was basically just a cream background with this written on it: "Glad Your A Happy Girl". Notice that she couldn't even spell the word "your" right. If I'm going to spend 18 grand on a painting then I'd at least want her to spell the bleedin' words right.
The best bit for me was a room full of architectural models that they'd probably mocked-up for the buyer, and decided to flog off when they lost the bid. They had a load of cut-away train stations and business parks done down to the minutest detail, with millimetre tall people running around the place.
