Jonathan's Art Dilemma No. 17: What are exhibitions for?

Friday, 10 December 2010


The chaos and confusion that surrounded the White Nights was fantastic. We all felt proud to be part of it, however brief. “too short and too fast. I think that we could have walked around again and stopped more to let the public see more.” It was the perfect environment. An ad hoc experiment of flat 2D images up above, in amongst the swirly madness of zombies, opera, folk singers, day of the dead celebrations and roving packs of drunken nutters. Great night. “Whose are those faces at the back of my phone pictures? Oh, someone said that they are the people who work when it’s dark. Weird.”
