sometimes, i just don’t get contemporary art. sometimes, i think it’s just a sham, especially when it involves what they like to call “found objects”. i met some friends down in london and feel a bit guilty about convincing them to check out the ica. i’ve been there before and usually has pretty cool stuff, but this time, it was disappointing. they had the work of this highly touted british artist, mike nelson, on display. the ‘time out’ said that “the stories continue to unfold long after you have left the gallery”. what bs. well, at least they had a decent bar + cafe. and the company was nice.
