Market driven model

One of the standout works for me in Reboot: the Jim Barr and Mary Barr collection show on at City was Ryan Moore's White Pin. Something about the space afforded to it, the simplicity, the artist's background appeal, as does the fact that a few people I've spoken to about it didn't even see it.

Given the context for the work though, I'm really tempted to discreetly switch it for a red pin.

i saw it. certainly on my second visit.

can't remember if i saw it on my first cos i was very taken by the little art gallery and associated works.

that whole room was cool. probably the best part of the show.

Absolutely - I too have been coveting one of those Wrong Gallery doors for a while: http://www.cerealart.com/shopexd.asp?id=423
