Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition

Brian Sewell has written a review in the London Evening Standard and as usual he doesn’t mince his words, he doesn’t like it.  I’ve never had the luxury of visiting in person so can only go by reviews.   BBC TV usually has an hour long Culture Show special each year but I notice this year it has been shortened to half an hour perhaps that points to the Exhibition not being any good.  I’ll watch on Tuesday BBC 2 10pm and see.

UPDATE:- Watched the Culture show special which was far too short so didn’t really get to see a lot of the art work which was disappointing.  What a delight though to see the short interview with El Anatsui.  His work is amazing, recycling at its best.  I thought his work would be solid so it was surprising to see it moving in the breeze.
