Tate Modern's Exposed Exhibition

Exposed. Tate ModernAs art galleries morph into theme parks, big shows are no longer enough to keep the turnstiles spinning. To attract more tourists with time to kill and extract the maximum amount of profit per head, galleries are now holding exhibitions that don't actually make sense.

The Tate Modern in London is holding one such event between 28 May and 3 October this year called "Exposed" - They say:

"A fascinating look at pictures made on the sly, without the explicit permission of the people depicted. With photographs from the late nineteenth century to present day, the pictures present a shocking, illuminating and witty perspective on iconic and taboo subjects. "

Having looked at the preview it looks like old news and paparazzi photographs, there's nothing to get excited about here. The Tate must be running out of ideas to get us to hand over a tenner.
