Video art goes missing from gallery

Missing video from the gallery is also untitled. This adds to other information we have about it being indistinctive, perhaps transparent, representing "...this space and not another space which is unlike what videos usually do" What a puzzle.

Meetings all day

Today we asked some serious questions about these difficult exhibitions we've been having. If difficult exhibitions are difficult, then the reading of them is easy: "Another difficult exhibition, another triumph, in a series of triumphs" (...against the odds, in contrast to all the easy works in the easy galleries).

We are determined to find a solution to this problem and will keep you posted.

Gallery welcomes chaos into the gallery

Scientists have asked MGU to host chaos for as long as we can stand it.
Depending on how the gallery copes the exhibition could be upgraded to quantum chaos.
Gallery assistants have already reported something leaking onto the floor and a strange smell.

No HTML please

No line breaks, fonts, italics, alignments, undoing.
New rules apply immediately, until 5pm.

New Show Impossible To Write About

The public relations and complaints team at MGU has been up all night as usual frothing about one thing or another. This time the focus has centered on the new exhibition, which is not even called 'untitled'. It is impossible to name it or call it. It is impossible to grasp it with the techniques we have come to rely on. The team said that they could not penetrate it with their intellect, as it would not allow it. The whole show has been running away from being known or seen or installed or written about. It is really quite unusual. 

Not Easy

The new exhibition opening tomorrow will show a work of art that cannot be moved into the gallery, it cannot leave where it is, yet it will still be there. It cannot be seen or heard but it can be comprehended. This new show will require no installing or heavy lifting, yet it will not be easy for anyone involved to be a part of it. It is going to be extremely difficult. The most difficult yet.

Artist only speaks through sketches

Even the gallery directors must decipher the messages themselves.

New Show

New exhibition illuminates or softens perspectival effects within the gallery. 
Viewing from any angle is a distortion. 
Opening hours are as usual.

Staff received a very generous offer late last night, that due to under-resourcing, had to sadly decline. Three young men, all very excited, offered to take the gallery "off our hands for a week or two". Gallery staff made the decision to unhook the Gallery from their car, coming to a mutual agreement that suits our art loving fans too. The young men will call their car 'Mobile Gallery Unit' for the week, while we will be referring to the Gallery as 'Mum's car'.

Is it not more in line with the mysterious forces that guide art, that the gallery guides are also drawn from the world of the same mysteries?
For the foreseeable future we are leaving the Gallery in the hands of 3 fairies and 1 ghost.
Normal opening hours remain.


Contemporary artists have outlined a new set of instructions for gallery staff.
They would like to radically change the structures of presenting contemporary art, the way contemporary art is thought about and discussed, and the relationship between art works and the public. They have come up with a series of suggestions that might help, based on how people sit at their desks. First on their list was the 'suggestion' of adopting the pictured pose for office work. The artists have suggested that all offices could adopt this practice, not just curators.

We are attempting this right now.

In a radical revamp of MGU's mission statement we have been able to reduce our ambition into a single sentence.
