On Sunday the historic Roman town of Colchester in Essex officially opened a new international centre for the visual arts designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects: firstsite (title link). More than 3,000 punters flocked into the building to gawk at the inaugural exhibition Camulodunum, which runs until 22 January 2012. Sadly, it's full of "contemporary" junk by the usual suspects: Ai Weiwei, Subodh Gupta, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Andy Warhol and so on and so forth (CLICK). It all seems so outmoded, inartistic and pointless.
