The fantastic Helen Round is again curating one of the Fringe Festivals best events the Museum of Particularly Bad Art's Itchiball Award. This event has now been going for 6 years now and the work gets worse every year
There are three things you are alway guaranteed to see at a MOPBA show -unicorns, nudie bits and Elvis.So bad it's good. But like all things, once collected and displayed it does take on a different quality. A sort of melancholia. After all, none of the artists really set out to make bad work, none of us ever do. We can't be that self conscious in our failures or our successes.
Fringe has lots of good stuff on offer. We'll bring you highlights and lowlights as the 3 weeks rolls on. Those of you with Iphones should download the app. Those of you who don't should jump on their website, it's terrific! RAMONA
