Tracey Emin for Venice!

Charles Thomson - Sir Nicholas Serota Makes an Acquisitions Decision (2006)Gross news! The Council - the governing body of what used to be called The Arts Council of Great Britain, until it became a national joke and was split into regional offices - has announced that the UK's Queen of Cloaca has been selected to represent Britain at the 52nd Venice Biennale 2007! The Council, which currently wastes £189 million of taxpayers' money and has a total annual income of £517 million, clearly wants to maintain its reputation for buffoonery. Tracey Emin! We'll be a laughing stock throughout Europe. This ghastly news hasn't hit the Stuckists' website yet (title link). They're still gloating over embarrassing Sir Nicholas Serota over Tate Modern's paying £600,000 to one of its trustees for elephant dung. Stuckist Charles Thomson's portrait of Sir Nick pondering the value of Emin's knickers says it all. You can see this painting among others at the Stuckists' exhibition Go West at London's Spectrum Gallery from 6 October.

Tracey Emin is a talentless chancer (like most Modern Artists).

Just look at the Tate Modern, lovely old building ruined by being filled with shit.

I'll qualify that: "Most modern artists that get a lot of publicity and undeserved wealth." Visit to see what some great contemporary artists are doing.
Have you seen the video of Sir Nick being given a copy of Tracey Emin's knickers (sent to me by the artist: Charles Thompson)?
