A notice from The Hayward Gallery, London, 28 May 2010:
The British Art Show Prelude
Three of Britain’s most exciting emerging artists–Roger Hiorns, Phoebe Unwin, Mick Peter–the Turner Prize-nominated artist, the painter and the sculptor use Northrop Frye’s model of seasons/genre to explore some issues in contemporary British art. Chaired by Tom Morton and Lisa Lefeuvre, Curators of British Art Show 7.
Most of us are really quite tired of hearing how old fashioned and irrelevant Northrop Frye’s theories are so this is great news. Perhaps Terry Eagleton might like to put it in his pipe and smoke it.
