Have you ever missed an art preview and then wished you had made the effort to mingle with all those trendy arty people drinking free beer and talking really loudly and not looking at any of the paintings because of all the other trendy people in the way or even worse missed the whole show even though it was on for months, because you're just so busy and you had never actually heard of that artist but then it turns out their work is really cool when you read about them in vice magazine 3 years later?

There are some really beautiful and clever things in here, most of which I had never seen before
