Obviously.....
Chris: Well every visit to the gallery is a bit of a gamble really..
i didn't think that the wall was that depressing Chris....petersmile
Chris: I didn't either Peter but..

They appear almost depressed.
Chris: That is what I thought too Hollie

"What was the price of the Entry ticket?"

"More important...did it include a Devonshire Tea?"
Chris: Fraid not sir, now move along please..

Haha!
Chris: Thank you Philine: art is not always a form of inspiration
If looks could kill, as they say. I think they're wondering how they can get through the waterfall?!
Chris: And they might have paid a lot of money to see this too Ginnie..

Oops, I hope this museum is not the reason that they get a divorce...

This is exactly why Ginnie and I have a 'Museum-card'... €55 per year. Some museums charge €17.50 to get in (Rijksmuseum with the Nightwatch)so with a few museum we often 'run' through one and we don't care if it is 'art' we don't understand.
This wall painting is not that bad, you have to keep your distance and than it is very nice..... Did the artist sneeze in an open pot of paint?
Chris: I think he did sneeze Astrid but the result isn't half bad really

Faces and body language - you have caught the mood
Chris: Thank you Lisl: this is the Arnolfini, Bristol
Someone needs to tell them that this isn't actually an exhibit just a badly plastered wall
Chris: Of course it is!!
They payed a visit to Droitwich and still can't get over it.
Chris: This is the price you pay for such foolishness..
Ha ha ha ha ha I love this Tiff, you have caught these two in that very special moment of, "we came all this way to see this".
Chris: Precisely Chad. If Dismaland was a real place and not a Banksy confection the paying punters would be like this..

Must be that they don't see the great pictures that we do.
Chris: Quite right Louis
I shouldn't laugh but this certainly brought a Monday morning smile. We never know what is causing this sad face. Her mind could be a million miles away.
Chris: Oh yes, it could be anything at all
I thought you said there was art in the image Chris, I see two people and a mud splashed wall.
Chris: That's about it Brian..

The brown colour looks ugly and deterrent, reminding of s**t or of brown Nazi sauce ...
Chris: Brown NS sauce sounds MOST unpleasant Philine!

Are we in Dismaland, WSM ?- in our newspaper I read today a detailed review with pics about this provoking entertainment by Banksy and Co. I don't want to see it!
Chris: This is the Arnolfini gallery in Bristol Philine. Dismaland is an English-style joke aimed at all American entertainment
Funny choice of wallpaper by the curators.
Chris: I couldn't work out if this was part of the installation or not Tom..
I really like this, Chris - you did a nice job of composing the shot!
