Prudence loves a good art exhibition opening, so it was with excitement she went along to the joint opening of this and this.
And was heartily disappointed.
As well as a meandering speech by an Associate Professor of art mostly about the manufacture of locomotives overseas, and a cliche-ridden opening by the arts minister, one of the artists spoke.
Her first words were a double exhortation not to touch the works.
Which is an object lesson on how to insult and alienate your audience in less than a minute.
Prudence saw unmistakeable similarities to this book, and can't forgive the lack of canapes to soak up the cheap wine.
