The Turner Contemporary Art Gallery Drops a Brick.

Carl Andre, the brick man of art will be having an exhibition at The Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate, starting from the beginning of next month.

Andre is famous for selling an art exhibit to The Tate Gallery in London that consisted of some bricks.

I guess The Tate had the last laugh with that one as the bricks are worth over a million pounds now.

The next few days are the last chance you have to see the Alex Katz exhibition at the gallery in Margate.

After that as far as I can see the majority of the gallery will be closed for the rest of the month. 

The gallery calls this Spring exhibition installation period15 January 2013    - 31 January 2013 you can check this on their website http://www.turnercontemporary.org/exhibitions

I was tentatively wondering if I could get away with closing my bookshop in Ramsgate for this long, but I think the local readers would get withdrawal symptoms. a different sort of art I suppose

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
