I hate the 'Is it art?' argument, but this is gross.

Did anyone see the in the news about the artist Mark McGowan who ate a swan as a protest against archaic rights belonging to the queen or upper classness or something? It's apparently illegal to eat a Mute swan as they are protected by the queen. However, it's also illegal under the 1981 wildlife protection act to eat any swan. So well done mate.

We saw William Hogarth at Tate Britain last night.

Having studied Hogarth for a short time during my degree, I was very interested in seeing his etchings and paintings up close, and wasn't disappointed.

What stood out most was his progressive thinking. Hogarth was like Chris Morris, Catherine Tate and Rory Bremner rolled into one person; satirising his culture, making appealing caricatures of societies' stereotypes, and lambasting political figures during his prolific career.

But he was not afraid to cover darker topics. His series Before & After showed two pairs of two images before and after intercourse has taken place between a young man and woman; the first showing a frivolous seduction and consequent post-coital glow, the second a predatory advance and what appears to be the after effects of rape.

Hogarth was also one of the first practitioners to understand the importance of artists' rights - his etchings were illegally copied and sold on markets - and he introduced the idea of laws controlling copyright.

And he was also not ashamed in distributing and copying his work for public consumption, in a time when bespoke commissions of Historical paintings were considered the highest artform. This adds to his appeal as a very modern artist, and a very accessible one for today's audiences, raised on Little Britain and the tabloid press.

It's an absolutely wonderful exhibition, brilliantly curated and utterly fascinating.

Like Adam it tied with things I had particularly enjoyed at university; the artist and I share a great admiration for restoration comedy and contemporary satire (like 'Gulliver's Travels'). The late 17th and 18th centuries are my favourite period of artistic endevours and the biting satire of the best of their creative output remains timeless.

The only problem I had was that I had a little under an hour to look round, which wasn't nearly enough time to fully appreciate such a wonderfully witty and beautiful collection.

That could almost be taken literally.

Reminds me of when I went to see an Aubrey Beardsley exhibition at the V&A back in 1998. I was doing a construction course at college at the time but snuck a day off to go to the exhibition as I did a little bit about Beardsley at school. The next day I was on the bus to college when one of my course mates came on. He asked where I'd been the day before and I told him all about it, but he seemed a bit perplexed by it. Eventually he piped, 'So...what, was you there watching him doing drawings?' laugh.gif

I felt like Stephen Fry in the film Wilde, talking to the miners, when I said, 'No he's dead.'
