AND… it’s been a magnificent day for the arts too:

First up was Yinka Shonibare’s new show at Stephen Friedman.

I think the last show I’ve seen there was Yoshitomo Nara many, many moons ago and even though their shows are always very well presented (and lit!), the staff hasn’t really learned anything about friendliness, but having said that, their office is right inbetween the two gallery rooms so I can somewhat understand how irritated you might get with all those visitors and their stupid questions. What I cannot understand, however, is that they had neither floor plans nor work lists available.

But anyways, if you’re in Londinium before November 20, go see it, if you’re not, don’t worry - the whole thing is online.

And as for you, monsieur Friedman: Please give your employees a proper office - I’m sure they deserve it and maybe buy a cheap HP printer so that visitors could take floor plans and work details home with them? Merci bien. :)
