Anatomy of Feelings
Why on earth should the Mall Galleries - home of the Federation of British Artists - give an airing to 60 garish doodles like this by Russian "non-conformist artist" Vladimir Yankilevsky? The answer is: "He has had more than 70 exhibitions in important museums around the world." Pathetic answer, Mall Galleries. Why follow the bad example of 70 tasteless museums? Did the Russian Mafia make you an offer you couldn't refuse? Oh well, admission is free. Anatomy of Feelings opens today or tomorrow, according to which part of the Mall website you read, and limps on until 6 March. My guess is that it opens tomorrow, because Tuesday is the Mall's usual day for opening exhibitions.
