HUGE COCK UP ON BBC LUNCHTIME NEWS!

What is it with the art world? You wait all day for one L’enfant terrible………. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s quashing of Yazmany Arboleda’s exhibition in New York, London suffered an art shock of it’s own. Viewers of BBC1’s 1pm news bulletin got rather more than they bargained for, when, during the preview for the BBC London regional news summary, artwork hand picked by Tracey Emin for the  summer exhibition at the Royal Academy popped up on screen. A quick glance at the image (below) will give you an idea of why the unsuspecting public were so shocked and of what a huge cock up this really was! 

The piece is a 1992 work by Mat Collishaw, Emin’s ex boyfriend. It is owned by Emin’s friend Damien Hirst. Some people may see depravity, others eroticism. Personally, I can’t get past the nepotism.
