blasblog: the art itch is growing
With the Frieze Art Fair coming up next week in London, it’s time to transition from the world of moda to the world of art. And who better than a gold Kate Moss to facilitate the transfer? Last night in London saw two major openings: the grand debut of Charles Saatchi’s new gallery off the Kings Road, which featured mostly Chinese art; and a group show at the British Museum, which included work from Damien Hirst, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, and Marc Quinn’s now legendary gilded Moss in a yoga position. Apart from the basement piece—a series of slain Communist leaders’ corpses in electronic wheelchairs—the big talk at Saatchi revolved around the so-called “airport lighting.” And at the British Museum, which drew the likes of Stella McCartney and Joely Richardson, conversation either debated Moss’ current career or the steak and potato canapés. Hey, I said I needed to transition into art. Baby steps.
