Yoko Ono's Smile

If you've ever wanted to be part of an art installation thingy, now's your chance. Yoko Ono wants you to send her a photo of your smile to say "Hello. How you doing?" for some daft project which opens at Manchester Art Gallery this week as part of the Manchester International Festival (CLICK). Some of the world's worst artists will be displaying tripe there. I'm reminded of the Hammer Film Productions' Manchester crime movie Hell Is a City (1960) written and directed by Val Guest. The graphic I've chosen for this post is Norman Mingo's Alfred E. Neuman, created for Mad magazine in 1952.
