The British Art Show 7 is currently touring the UK, starting off in Nottingham and showing there from now until 9 Jan (then it goes on to London, Glasgow & finally Plymouth, ending Dec. 2011). So Brits have no excuse not to get on down to see it. There looks to be some rad pieces, including sculpture from Sarah Lucas, photo-manipulation from Wolfgang Tillmans, and even a pair of life-sized entwined lovers encased in glass by Charles Avery.
