Fantastic gallery in an historic building with the best conceptual art in London

Thanks for the review. This would have passed me by otherwise. I love the idea.

To be a Grumpy Old Man for a moment and risk sounding ungrateful, I was overwhelmed by the generosity but underwhelmed by the lack of imagination of the presents for my 50th birthday (Chris not included - thanks for the Chateau Musar) so at 51 I bought myself Tate, RA and British Museum memberships. For the last three years I've been late in, had long lunchtimes and left early to get to galleries during the week, occasionally taken my boss to members' previews and had a standing date with an old colleague to the RA Summer Ex opening. Of course I go back at weekends to enjoy as much as I can at that time. Chatting to one of the guards at Tate Britain last Bank Holiday at the Conceptual Art show, he recommended that I take two oranges rather than one as they were particularly juicy and well worth having. He wasn't wrong.

Out of necessity, I squeeze a lot of my art-going into snatched minutes or hours during the week. I applaud Maria Eichhorn for her statement.
