And presenting the Summer Exhibition, none other than Grayson Perry RA in a very clownesque customised outfit to his image (on his back), Grayson is really his biggest creation. It was fabulous to hear how fast he went to customise the hanging by specifying colours of the paintings regardless of the subjects or artists, to him it was a big collage. Here is under a portrait of Mosley after he told us how he loved the portrait of Farrage on the other wall.

Celebrating Christo at the Victoria and Albert Museum

Too late now for you to go and see it and it was fully booked as soon as it was sent. I had the privilege yesterday to assist at a private screening yesterday of "Bridge to Christo" and "The Frontier of our dreams"

One depicts his biggest and latest project of a floating bridge or pier in Italy and the other the relationship with his brother who remained in Bulgaria. They are both alive and well and there is a third brother who is not himself an artist and was barely talked about.

Fascinating talk ensued after the screenings and directors and screenwriters were answering a Q&A session.

Everyone remembers the huge works and the economic impact but what of the environmental impact? This was not addressed.

The presentation by Phillip Bergson was without fail despite some technical problems in the projection. 

Audience reacted with emotion as to the relationship between brothers living in very different circumstances in communism and capatalism. The artist both glorified in each systems.

Did the wrapping stem from the fact that their father was an industrialist who was accused and subsequently arrested as a saboteur. Huge wads of fabrics were burned down.

It is uncanny that Christo chose to wrap monumental projects all of which were self financed through the sale of his work of art.
