Martian Museum of Terrestrial Art

At Barbican Art Gallery, London. "Anthropologists from outer space set out on a mission to understand life on Earth. . . . [T]hey begin their mission by examining the curious phenomenon that human beings call ‘contemporary art’." Judging from The Guardian's slideshow, a great show, including 100 artists and accompanied by "Films from Another Planet," naturally including some Cremaster. Through May 18, 2008.
