Light Show

When in doubt, pose a pretty girl next to it. This pretty girl is a Hayward Gallery employee admiring Leo Villareal's Cylinder II. If anyone doubts that beauty is a socially upwardly mobile characteristic, note how many pretty girls are employed by big galleries and auction houses. Yesterday the Hayward Gallery in London opened Light Show, a retrospective of light installation thingies by 22 "artists" from the 1960's to the present (CLICK). I've seen better Christmas trees. And the Hayward expects you to to pay £11 for this tosh, £10 for silver surfers. CLICK for a BBC slide show.
