What is it about ‘No’ you don’t understand?

Talking around, it sounds like the Auckland Art Fair has decided to take a trade fair approach. We’re told that exhibitors will not be allowed to change the colour of walls (sorry John Reynolds), no holes will be allowed in the walls (forget it Peter Robinson) and floor coverings have to be approved (I don’t think so Hany Armanious). Sounds like even furniture and fittings have to be vetted (ah… et al. … would you get, whatever that is, the hell out of here). Unfortunately for the Auckland Art Fair much of the best art today is kind of unruly. Coming to terms with that will be the challenge that differentiates the event from your average car show.
