A Slap in the Face for the Art World

A Slap in the Face for the Art World
Phil Collins is slapping people in the name of art, the Guardian reports. The Turner Prize-nominated artist's project "You'll Never Work in This Town Again" features more than 100 photographs of prominent art world figures seconds after Collins has slapped them. Collins, who said he once slapped 28 people in one evening, will show five of the works in the group exhibition "Double Agent" at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts in March. "Everybody's reaction is different: some laugh hysterically and one guy even fell off his chair," the artist said. "I only got a photograph of his shoulder."
