Digital Aesthetic 3 at the Harris; Tate Modern (William Klein & Daido Moriyama); Rain Room at Barbican (3 hour wait so didn’t); Turner Prize at Tate Britain; Saatchi; ICA (exhibitions closed); Tate Modern (The Bigger Splash); David Shrigley at the Cornerhouse. Just so I don’t forget.

My bog standard/MO criticism of the display at the Harris – time based work with no signage indicating the length of time of the piece and no chairs/seating etc. How many times? Is it the artist or the curator?

Compare and contrast; at Tate Britain, signage for Luke Fowlers 90 minute film about R.D. Laing displayed screening times (like a cinema) and also stated “The screening room Model for an Artist’s Cinema 2012 was purpose built to propose a solution to the problem of showing long-form films within a gallery settting”. Which is better but…..so the person who designs/installs tiered seeting is being recognised for doing so as a response to a problem….do the technicians get a round of applause for hanging a painting. I wouldn’t pay £10 (price of admission to see Turner Prize) to see a film in a cinema knowing I would then be expected to stand up to watch the film, this all seems very basic – it’s 2013! The signage for the winner was very clear (no seats but because I’ve been informed it’s 20 minutes long I can do that – see image).
