Who says Art is ART and should we believe THEM?
The art world must appear truly bizarre to those outside it. It’s been recently sent up in satirical films such as The Square and Velvet Buzzsaw. Is art something to be poked fun of or something deeply profound … or both?
Eli Castelli’s book and now exhibition ‘There is no F in art’ starts off with quotes that show us both sides of art. The book pokes fun at artspeak, how art is deemed so valuable, the celebrity culture behind certain artists and how value can change depending on where art has been displayed. This exhibition takes the notion of ' art is ‘anything you can get away with’ (Andy Warhol) from the pages of the book into a gallery setting - a truly immersive dip into the world of art.

This exhibition and book launch humorously looks at 'Who says Art is ART and should believe THEM'?
