Sir 'Boss' Nick in Row
The answer to Daria Zhukova's question is: Yes, boyfriend Roman Abramovich does intend to hang it on the wall. The wall in question is part of Daria's Centre for Contemporary Culture in Moscow, a former bus garage designed in 1926 by Russian architect Konstantin Melnikov. But the rich pair need the advice of "Tate boss" - as the Telegraph headline puts it - Sir Nick Serota. Could this be a conflict of interest for Sir Nick? demands the Telegraph in an inelegant, cobbled together rehash of a story it found in The Art Newspaper. Yes, yes, yes and yes, assert his critics, but I can't see the conflict myself. Sir Nick kids the punters that contemporary tripe is art, and Roman is reputedly the daft punter who lashed out £60m on Lucien Freud's Benefits Supervisor Sleeping and Francis Bacon's Triptych. Plus Tate Modern needs cash for its extension. Sounds like a grovel made in Heaven. As Moneybags Hirst's agent has also been roped in as an adviser, it's safe to predict that one of Moneybags more monstrous pieces of junk will head for Moscow to improve Russian culture. Need any more advisers, Roman old son? I've a patchwork quilt my mother made. It's worth a fortune. Design you a nice logo for the bus garage, lovely Daria? A snip at £1m.
