Where is Modern Art Now?

Yesterday I mentioned that sculptor (and filmmaker) Tom Price was set to appear in the BBC4 documentary “Where is Modern Art Now?”. Tom showed with us as part of “60 Miles By Road or Rail” earlier on in the year and is a friend of the Fishmarket.

It’s available to watch now on BBC’s iPlayer right here.

The highlights for me (in chronological order) are:- a thoroughly charming Anthony Caro, video footage of the YBAs looking genuinely young, Michael Landy’s assessment of the art world and his suggestion that the focus is moving from the value of art to the art itself, Cornelia Parker’s flattened brass instruments, Grayson Perry describing Jackson Pollock as a “rubbish” painter, and of course Tom Price’s work.

Interesting viewing.
