Museum to exhibit invisible artwork

London's Hayward Gallery is to break the mould by putting several piece of 'invisible' art on display.

The unusual exhibition will cost 8 to visit and is aimed towards "firing the imagination" of those who come to see it. Featuring works from Andy Warhol, Yves Klein, Yoko Ono and more, the exhibition is believed to be the first of its kind ever staged in a major UK institution.

Among the works is the descriptively titled "1000 Hours of Staring" which consists of a blank piece of paper, and the more enigmatic "Untitled (A Curse)" which features an empty space said to be cursed by a witch.

"London's Hayward Gallery will gather together 50 ''invisible'' works by leading figures such as Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and Yoko Ono for its display of works you cannot actually see."

It is an interesting phylosophical idea indeed. Maybe have one exibit and the question posed. But really as stated by Leonardo, it is about ego. And perhaps idol worship. Should I feel grateful or enlighted to see a spot where andy stood? Im an artist as well, and I find it rather silly and even a bit insulting to pay someone else for the privalge to think for myself. Bingo! Was thinking the same thing, since I paint and draw whenever in my freetime. Even though I'm not much of an artist IMO, still...it's insulting regardless.

I will use my 'imagination' and imagine that I buy an invisible plane ticket to the U.K. (bought with invisible gold of course, as I just recently found out on this thread that there is no such thing as invisible money) . I shall imagine myself paying the admission to go see this invisible display of fine art. Damn invisible TSA just patted me down and touched my no-no place. They are saying that I have an invisible bomb and I am a threat to the invisible plane that I was about to board. Oh well, there goes that trip. Damn, you poor man! You should of bought your own invisible plane with that ... [More]

I feel like we in "The Emperor's New Clothes" story when someone ask such question

Exactly! Well I dont understand how there can be a right or wrong. Why have 'invisible art' from "famous artists"? Princess Tumbleweed showed that one doesn't have to be "famous" (no disrespect intended, Princess) to be an artist, and the quality of Princess's 'invisible art' was equal to that of these "famous artists". Maybe if someone is familiar with a certain artist they will imagine something along a similar style. Almost like how I imagined all the types of corny responses that would come after reading the heading of this thread after being in this forum for such a time. Anyway and I gue... [More]

I wonder if they added this to the exhibition? http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=206992 This is just part of the story: Community members had accused him of talking to animals and using an invisible penis to sleep with women in the informal settlement. They also accused his wife of turning into a snail and terrorising the community.

It would appear that if you are a known artist you can get away with anything. Sometimes I think these artists take us 'common' folk as gullible fools. I wont even mention what I think of those stuck up sticky beak art critics lol
