When they're not being bothered by obscenity obsessed police, The Tate Modern have just put up the fantastic Pop Life exhibition. Featuring loads of great gays and pop artists alike, there's room after room of garish greatness including the recreation of the above, Keith Harings Pop Shop. You can even pick up one of his tees while you're there and sample some of the banging tunes. It's one of the many striking things about the exhibition, that there's music in several of the rooms. It's nice, it's different, it's unusual. Though we pity the poor attendant who's got to listen to Kirsten Dunst covering Turning Japanese on repeat - it's fantastic, but any song on loop would drive you, well, loopy. Elsewhere Jeff Koons has a nice cock, Warhol's Interview covers are Amaze and there's a dead horse. Gold Stars All Round.
In other art news, despite the Stuckist protesters outside (GET A JOB, etc) the Turner Prize exhibit is opening. It's a small selection, but we got most excited about Enrico David, a gay! Clearly we should spend more time reading The Daily Mail, their gaydar is razor sharp (GET OVER IT, etc). Enrico's room was a surreal stage show of weeble-esque egg sculptures and bendy arms and builders bums. It's brilliant. Enrico to win! We've got the badge and everything.
