A couple of weeks ago I visited York Art Gallery. It’s only around a 20 minutes walk from where I live. Woo. It’s a stunning building and although we had to pay to get in, there was a discount for residents.

My favourite part of the museum was the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition which is a presentation of 16 short listed artists from all over the world. The artworks comment on contemporary culture and explore themes such as globalisation, perceptions of space and alienation in the digital age. We had the option to vote for our favourite. Mine was the cut outs of people in different colours called ‘I am here’ by Emmanuelle Moureaux. I was close to picking the lime painting, but went with the cut outs instead.

I’ll let you look at the photos and decide for yourself it’s is worth a visit…
