Cultural Olympiad

What is it about Tracey Emin that attracts the BBC? Is it one of those casting couch things? Look at this BBC headline: Tracey Emin to design 2012 Olympic posters (title link). It turns out that she's just one of the useless deadbeats the British Anti-art Establishment has chosen to design posters for the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad. Others commissioned to design Games posters include Martin Creed, Rachel Whiteread, Howard Hodgkin, Bridget Riley, Sarah Morris, and Bob and Roberta Smith. This is pathetic. I'm sure real artists could have been found. Here is my thought for a poster: a very feminine contestant in the Rhythmic Gymnastics. How about having her twirl her thingy around Big Ben?

Hi, Tinkerbell

Thank you for your comment. I always write it as I see it on London Art News.

You're not by any chance the lovely Tinkerbell from Travian? Long time no contact.

Regards
