AKA Peace

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London trumpets "Contemporary artists unite for Peace One Day" (CLICK). Using decommissioned AK-47 assault rifles, a number of the UK's worst artists have turned them into works of "art". I hate to write this, but Moneybags Hirst's Spin AK47 for Peace One Day is the prettiest of the bunch. The exhibition limps along until 30 September. The works will be auctioned on 4 October by Phillips de Pury & Co. to raise funds for Peace One Day, a harmless but pointless campaign to gain a worldwide ceasefire. CLICK for a Telegraph slide show.
