It's not rocket science though is it? Opera employ a security guard or member of staff for the night with a ticket book, he/she hands out 100 tickets to people queueing until they are gone. You give the ticket in when you get the print. Same way VNA do it. Would've cost Opera 150 quid tops to do that 10pm-10am and all this stupidity and jumping could be avoided. If someone in the queue has 52 and the guy in-front has nada then he hasn't clearly queued in that spot has he?
Kinda not surprised by this, it's becoming more of a given that this will happen. Woke up at 5 and after speaking to a couple of friends in the queue decided against standing in the rain and losing half a days pay. Good luck to all that made the effort. I hope you get lucky and don't lose out.
its a shame this goes on, and punters and galleries will never win,
even if you get a ticket there will be a queue for tickets for tickets to get a ticket for a ticket etc etc etc. you get me ?
im sure the simple way of doing this would be have an opening go and have a look at the artwork pop your name in the hat then after the exhibition they do a draw and there you go bobs your uncle,
to be fair i think its quite irresponsible of the gallery to do this, for many many reasons.....
keep your eyes on ebay im sure by 12o clock there will be a few up for sale, and of course people on here will see the print and like it, i probably will to, but i refuse to buy it regardless of price, i recommend that you do too as it just adds fuel to the ever burning fire of these leaches that do it just for a fast buck.....(thats my 10p's worth anyway)
does it even matter? I'm guessing not for the people in the queue.
Im interested, was going to go up on the train this morning. Couldnt drag myself out of bed at 4.48am though.
Dont really get the idea everyone is off to flip it. I would have been way happy to get one. May not be his best image (seems obvious not to give away your best selling work!!!). It would have been Bleks style though, and also my first Blek print. Would have still framed it and put it on the wall. If its a great image, maybe the front room, if its a crap image, maybe the wall inside my wardrobe. Would have kept it though!
So if someone does decide "meh this is crap" feel free to send it on, id be happy.
At the same time, i am NOT suggesting a s**t load of them wont be on ebay within the hour. they most definatly WILL be.
