No sooner do I say this, than Timothy pops up in my comments box to tell me what it is: namely, a web-based project entitled 40 artists, 40 days.
This blatant, blatant hijacking of my pioneering and celebrated 40 In 40 Days Project is a wheeze cooked up by The Tate Gallery, in support of London’s 2012 Olympics bid. Working rather like an Advent Calendar, a brand new artwork will be revealed on the Tate website each day, from today until July 6th. (There’s more information here.) Today’s first work is a portrait by Sam Taylor-Wood, with future contributors including Antony Gormley, Mario Testino and Norman Foster. My kind of thing, if you ignore all that sporting nonsense.
