Tate Margate II

A goodly crowd turned out for the opening of Turner Contemporary yesterday, curious to view the interior of a building which is supposed to regenerate Margate. People actually queued to get in! The big question is: How many will return for a second visit? There is nothing I would call "art" in the above photo. It's a sterile office space apparently waiting for the new tenants to move in and fill it with desks, chairs, computers, filing cabinets and potted plants. Art gallery? In your dreams. The only remarkable thing about Turner Contemporary is that it reduced Tracey Emin to tears (CLICK).
