Cathedral of Shit

has taken a well earned GAP year

Wayward Hayward…

Posted by cathedralofshit on February 26, 2010

The Hayward Gallery seems to be closing for refurbishment… or is it? We’ve been somewhat unreliably informed (you’ve gotta speculate to accumulate) that this period is actually masking a programming gap due to the effects of the recession. It was refurbished some 6 years ago with 1.3m from the Arts Lottery Council and £500,000 from other sources, so CoS wonder exactly what they’re doing in there… perhaps Ralph’s getting new curtains…?

    How much does it cost to put in new drywall? Cause that’s mostly what a gallery is. That and lighting. And the tax payers gave him that much to refurbish his gallery. I’m sure the before and afters don’t look much different. But his yacht certainly does.

    They may be awaiting fiscal stimulation.
