This year, the David Hockney exhibition transformed the exterior of the Royal Academy of Arts into a moving wall of flesh, travelling at approximately 0.25 miles per hour on weekdays. An extraordinary turnout and the combined cacophony of conversation and opinion from the public both inside and out of the gallery was the ultimate eavesdroppers dream.
Cue Matilda (“Mmaattiillddaa”) Tristram who made a wonderfully simple single frame, borderless comic of her visit featuring charmingly reproduced artwork and the illustrations of gallery goers. Overheard snatches include: “In a way it’s terrible… in a way it’s absolutely GORGEOUS!” and “She is sick at drawing” and “It’s a face, it’s a face” and “Why would they put these ones together?? I mean why?” Lovely stuff.
