“i like this picture”

This is Raspberry at the Tate Liverpool is 25 exhibition, making her preferences for certain kinds of art known. They had a pad of post-its on which visitors could post their birthday messages on the wall, so that’s what she used. She went around leaving notes that very succinctly read “I like this [or these] pictures” with corresponding arrows, and stuck them to the wall. When we returned to the exhibit later on, the staff had moved all her post-its to the area where all the messages were meant to be, denoted by a dotted line. Her notes became lost in a sea of green sticky paper, flapping on the wall.

    I wish they would have left them up.

    I think the artists would appreciate the feedback from a child’s eye….

  2. Isn’t it? :)

    It doesn’t surprise me they moved them. After all, despite the interactive nature to the exhibition, they’re still very much a museum and respond to their works in that way.
