First Thoughts

Gavin Turk

Gavin Turk (born 1967) is a British artist, and is considered to be one of the Young British Artists. Turk’s oeuvre deals with issues of authenticity and identity, engaged with modernist and avant-garde debates surrounding the ‘myth’ of the artist and the ‘authorship’ of a work of art.

Report on fantastic with Gavin Turk, Jim Moir (Vic Reeves) Tracey Emin (sort of)
Overheard at the Royal Academy "We could buy a Merc for that price and youd be more comfortable" (not ironic ref to Gavin Turk's white van)
Major new works by leading contemporary artists including Martin Creed, Mark Wallinger, Gavin Turk, George Shaw, Bill Woodrow and Richard Long are to be exhibited as part of The Crisis Commission.
Just been working, with BBC1 Pointless on in the background. My ear was caught by the final category, "Contemporary artists", which was then refined into Young British Artists of 1997 (are you listening Sharyn?). The contestants - who had themselves chosen this category - came up with David Hockney, Damien Hirst and Banksy. Now, the point of Pointless is to find an answer that the majority of the audience don't know or don't guess. However, every single artist was "pointless", apart from Hirst who scored only five points, and Tracey Emin who scored a little more, apparently. The others were: Chris Ofili, Gavin Turk, Gillian Wearing, Marc Quinn, Mark Wallinger, Michael Landy, Rachel Whiteread, Sarah Lucas, Sam Taylor-Wood. All totally pointless, because nobody in the audience had heard of them. How about a visit to Tate Modern, folks?
well Pete Townshend being inspired by Metzger definitely more important than Gavin Turk inspire…
So here we go folks, the next exhibition opens this Friday, the 18th, at The Mayors Parlour in Bow, featuring work from The DnA Factory, among a host of other super exhibitors, including Franko Black, John Tiney, Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk, Mat Collishaw, Polly Morgan, Peter Lamb, Henry Martinez... doors open at 6pm, expect fine boozes & much frolicking...we'd love it if you can join us, DnA x

'Punk Rock: Artifice or Authenticity' from Borthhwick, S. and R.Moy (2004) Popular Music Genres: An Introduction (Edinburgh University Press)   An overview of the genre   The term 'punk' can be used adjectively in order to qualify a range of activities. Recent academic analyses of punk phenomena point towards the possibility of there being punk politics, punk journalism (such as the work of Lester Bangs), punk clothing and fashion (including both the haute couture work of Vivienne Westwood and Zandra Rhodes, and the no less spectacular clothing of punk bands and everyday punks), punk poetry (as performed by the Mancunian wordsmith John Cooper Clarke), punk cartoons (such as the commercially successful comic Love & Rockets), punk art (the work of 'young British artist' Gavin Turk or the Sex Pistols' art director Jamie Reid), punk fanzines (such as Sniffin' Glue), punk fiction (Gideon Sams or Stewart Home), punk cinema (Derek Jarman's Jubilee), and even punk etiquette (which often involved spitting).
