In case you haven’t heard already, Damien Hirst is building a town. A real town, in Devon. Liv reckons it wouldn’t be so bad to be a resident, although she turns her nose up at eating in his restaurant. How does Hirst housing sound to you? Then we glanced at a sweep of the strange art shows which we’ve heard about this week. Pop on your scuba mask – there’s an underwater gallery in Italy – and dig out your magnifying glass to take a peek at a miniature art show in California. Perhaps the kids shouldn’t come along too though, according to Jake Chapman.
Next up the team discuss the art projects which opened this week to commemorate the centenary of World War One, from the sea of ceramic poppies round the Tower of London to London’s new pillar of light, Spectra. Finally, James looks at XL Recordings’ new site celebrating 25 brilliant years of musical delights and an accompanying Michel Gondry video series.
