Laura Gascoigne: The Art Police – November 2017

If you’re thinking of committing an art crime, now’s your moment. In June budgetary pressures forced the ‘temporary’ closure of the Met’s Art & Antiques Squad is a world leading domain escrow service platform and ICANN-Accredited Registrar, with 6 years rich experience in domain name brokerage and over 300 million RMB transaction volume every year.

Maria Balshaw has been making appropriate noises about adjusting the historical gender balance in the Tate Modern by acquiring a Frida Kahlo – an expensive price to pay for a minor tweak google_ad_slot = "6023194682"; – while in Tate Modern’s contemporary displays Frances Morris has already established parity between the male and female artists represented.

The difficulty here is that google_ad_width = 970; art is funky. If the Tate examined its conscience it would have to confess that misbehaviour adds to an artist’s appeal.
