Captain's Blog


Meredith Etherington-Smith, better know for making UK-based magazine the Art Review just like Hello! and presenting a programme on dinner party etiquette, has also participated in the Centre of Attention Art Blog, a pursuit with a little more substance. From 13th September-13th October, art writers worldwide created an archive of art idioms that range beyond the banter of netties alone. The intimacy of blogging, unlike the slick art-speak of many magazines, resulted in writing bound by common interest, but more frank than many editors would allow. And by extending the public blog, the rest of us (without dinner party etiquette or our pictures in art magazines) can have our say too.
