A Place For Peyton

Elizabeth Peyton - Craig (1997)A Connecticut Yankee in the East End of London would be a good title for a book. Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton opens at the newly expanded Whitechapel Art Gallery, Galleries 8 & 9, on 9 July and continues until 20 September, admission free. If, like me, you've never heard of Elizabeth Peyton - hangs head in shame -, this is the show to visit (title link). It boasts 70 of her paintings, organised by the New Museum, New York. If you decide to give Elizabeth a viewing, you might pop into Gallery 7 to see some appalling tripe from the British Council Collection: The Third Dimension (CLICK). It won't cost you a penny to see how the Brit. Anti-art Establishment wastes taxpayers' money! Why do we fund that white elephant?
