Selected works from an exhibition by Art Below, featuring Mickey-taking depictions of the late Margaret Thatcher, were due to be shown in Westminster Tube Station yesterday, but CBS Outdoor has banned them, citing advertising guidelines (CLICK). Amazing that an American firm should decide what art is fit to be shown on the London Underground! Blame TfL for this anomaly. Shown is Ben Moore's On Earth as it is in Heaven, an amusing pastiche of Peter Paul Rubens' The Assumption of the Virgin Mary with the Iron Lady's face replacing Mary's. I can't imaging anyone throwing a wobbler over this. If you want to view the banned works, visit Gallery Different before 29 April (CLICK).
