Mark has kindly provided me with a link to the Royal College of Art secret postcard sale. The idea is that one can buy postcards for £35, not knowing whether they are by a famous artist or someone entirely unheard-of. I like it – the novel idea that art should be about what the piece looks like rather than the name of the person who has created it.
If I was a famous artist who was part of this I would do a really rubbish picture in an attempt to fool people. Or perhaps a really good picture as a double bluff. But there again my idea of a good picture might be everyone elses idea of a rubbish one.
The sale started this morning and ends tomorrow (Saturday 26th November). Obviously if you observing Buy Nothing Day you can’t take part.
