Allen Jones RA

Today the Royal Academy of Arts in Burlington Gardens, London, opened Allen Jones RA. The aged pop artist isn't very pop with feminists. This sculpture Chair (1969) was attacked by a feminist who thought it demeaning to women. It would have been more demeaning if Allen hadn't given her knickers. But there's more to his work than using women as furniture. This is a complete retrospective of the many aspects of his career. It runs until 25 January, admission £10 adults, £9 silver surfers (CLICK). The BBC loves it (CLICK).
