LS Lowry may or may not be the hottest ticket in town – but he is the most expensive. Tickets to see Tate Britain's exhibition of his work cost £16.50, provoking much comment in the thread under Adrian Searle's review. Is this an outrage? Are ticket prices for art shows going nuts?
I can't resist mentioning here that the Lowry show is co-curated by the great Marxist art historian TJ Clark. Maybe the old revolutionary is deliberately revealing the cogs that make the capitalist art machine go round?
