I've recently heard lots about a new art competition for artists, photographers and sculptors called the Art of Giving, if you're one of the thirty shortlisted entrants then you exhibit and sell your work in the Saatchi Gallery in an exhibition with Jeff Koons, Gavin Turk, Mark Wallinger and loads more very well known artists. Vic Reeves, Terry O'Neill and Christian Furr are judging.
You can enter by visiting www.artofgiving.co.uk <http://www.artofgiving.co.uk> and the closing date for entrants is the 31st August.
Why would anyone give money to a venue to help a hack like Koons who will probably use the money to pay his legal bills since he is always being sued for plagiarism. These things are scams that pray on artists. Avoid them at all costs.
And you've doubleposted this thread in 2 sections already.
Replace koons and the other hacks with some decent artists worth showing and you might be able to justify extorting poor artists of their money to support a marketing campaign, disguised as a charity, for those inbred mouthbreathers who dare to call themselves artists.
But just for the sake of updating this thread, here's my reply to the other one.
"I would but koons gives me anal Leakage. It's horrible really."
