We love Lisa Le Feuvre and Tom Morton. But we also haven’t quite witnessed anything quite as self-promoting as their tweet-feed @lefeuvremorton. We all know that the British Art Show is jolly good and that they searched long and hard over one pissed-up weekend in Bethnal Green in order to curate it. We love it!

But so far this week we’ve received re-tweeted praise from @lefeuvremorton that ranges from @krisatomoc saying “I recommend the British Art Show at the Hayward” (thanks Kris!) to “itsyourlondon” claiming the “British Art Show7 looks worth a visit” (cheers itsyourlondon!), through to NickSantosPedro assuring the two curators and everybody they re-tweeted “Your careers are now assured” (thanks NickSantosPedro!).

Now whilst we love hearing NickSantosPedro’s rating of our lovely co-curator’s careers we’re starting to get a little bit suspicious that nothing negative is being tweeted about the show. Surely someone out there can’t stand Charles Avery or thinks that Emily Wardill’s films are mind-numbingly dull? So as an experiment we would like to ask all our dear readers to tweet @lefeuvremorton telling them that the show was a terrible piss-poor excuse of an exhibition and their careers are down the toilet.
Not that we think this, we’re just curious to see if its re-tweeted back to all of us eager followers.

Su sussudio, oh oh…

We enjoy the fashion efforts of the art world. But what’s a curator to do if he has a sartorial query? Why, ask your favourite men’s journal!
