Here’s my Artlink review of the summer show at GOMA (that’s closing May 11th).

I was glad to have the opportunity to comment in print on this show because the work is mainly about spectacle. And while it treats an important subject – the environmental crisis – my experience of the art itself left me pretty much unmoved.

That so many people have been wowed by this exhibition: that’s interesting.

Have a read and I’d welcome comments from any and all of you.

Here’s the review: Cai Guo-Qiang at GOMA

  1. Hi Carol I agree – Lame show at GOMA, Lame-o. Imagine the cost. Having a ball over in Germany. Painting still has some respect here They run a good programme and we are meeting lots of artists, curators etc. I’ve attached a couple of shots for interests sake. All the best Stefan
