For Immediate Release.

Posted by cathedralofshit on October 29, 2009

A suggestion from a reader (wow – readers! How times change).

Press releases. Now, not to step on the toes of the formidable BANK and their Gallery ‘FAX-BACK’ service, but this reader sent us a suggestion to pluck a few of the worst press releases out there, and flag ’em up…

And I quote from said reader:

“i know its shooting fish in a barrel, and its a bit cruel to pick apart the writing style of some unpaid intern- but what about a top 5 awful press releases?
This one is truly abysmal then again so is the show.

Keep up the good work


So, send them in – we’ll form a list. Perhaps a prize to all those who send in shocking Press Releases? A fortnight for two in Peckham? Second prize, a one week internship at Museum 52.

One Response to “For Immediate Release.”

    Pearson’s work may seem like grotesque monuments
    of redundant empires and social territories, however it is also a
    reflection of the monstrous vitality of creative self genesis that
    revitalises meaning and affect through the absurd collision of this
    ideological language.
