This is art

NdeP attempted to spread the 'this is art' MAVA manifesto by subversive stickering. This was achieved by placing 'This is art' manifesto stickers in various places and monitoring where possible how long they remained in place (or were removed).

Not only did MAVA's NdeP and JZZ experience Jake Chapman talking about - well, everything really; they also encountered Ivor, the chap above.

Ivor was not allowed to take his 'THIS IS NOT ART' placard into the lecture theatre at the art college.


Proof, if you needed it, that nothing is art and art is nothing.

With the Turner Prize now open to over 50 year olds, it was great to see Lubaina Himid, 63, win the award on December 5. On a college trip to Hull the day after, Nom de Plume managed to congratulate Lubaina briefly while she was being photographed and also photobombed one shot (above).
