Dropped in on the way home this evening.

Wasn't this on the ground floor a couple of years ago ?

And the finished 'head to head'

Can't wait for the Edward Hopper exhibition on 27th May.
I have 6 Hopper prints. One of my favourite artists. Really lonely scenes. Yes, lonely

interesting that the ads on this site seem to synchronise with whatever we write. So for example at the top of the page are currently ads for Edward Hopper prints, because Phoney mentioned that.

I assume that if we wrote 'international arms trade' we might get ads matched to that......?

<waits for ads>

My memory must be slipping. I could have sworn it was on the ramp on the ground floor in 2000.

There were big metal installations on the ground floor by her then - 'I Do, I Undo, I Redo'. ...they were fantastic.

How do you account for the ads for a 'compactor/baler' and free waste audit ???

that came in after I mentioned 'international arms trade'...

I notice that the thread on electricians has ads for electrical goods, and the one on the Hartley has ads for pub-related stuff.

let's try another couple.



yoo-hooo....let's see those ads roll in..

Tate Press Release

"Louise Bourgeois' extraordinary sculpture Maman (Mother) returns to Tate Modern on 1 May 2004.
Tate Modern has the opportunity to show the work once again on the bridge across the Turbine Hall. Maman represents a female spider who carries her white marble eggs beneath her. Made of steel the sculpture stands nine metres (thirty feet) high and has a legspan of ten metres. The climactic work of a series of spiders made through the 1990s, Maman accesses Bourgeois' childhood anxieties and preoccupation with family relationships. Tate has been storing the sculpture for Louise Bourgeois and is planning a major exhibition of her work in 2007."

Assuming the pictures are already on a web server, you just need to put the url in an image tag like this:
