Funky Monkey

Who wants to come and see Chris Ofili's 'The Upper Room' at the Tate Britain with me? It's been laid out in an extraordinary way: chapel-like, with dim, church-y lighting, and I think it's the same exhibition I saw a few years back in Primrose Hill (Jarvis Cocker was there, excitingly). There are thirteen paintings of Rhesus monkeys in different colours - all dazzling, sparkling, fantastically vibrant - laid out in homage to Jesus and the twelve disciples, with one at the end and six on either side.
