Tarts and Whores at the National.

Probably #1 on the the list of things you're unlikely to read on the Artsy bit.

After listening to R4 this morning, I have a great desire to visit the National Gallery.

The National Gallery, home of the nation's Old Masters, is about to exhibit its first contemporary art installation, by recreating a street scene from Amsterdam's Red Light district.
"The Hoerengracht" - which is Dutch for Whore's Canal - was made in the 1980s by the American artists Ed and Nancy Kienholz.

The theme behind the work is apparently the legalisation prostitution. Quite right too IMHO.

Anyhow, more point to it than an unmade bed or half a fish.


Probably stir some memories for the odd culture vulture...
