We Go to the Gallery

By Miriam Elia.

Featured spread is reproduced from <i>We Go to the Gallery</i>.

An art world parody of a children's primer on looking on art -- not for kids but very funny

Have you taken children to a gallery recently? Did you struggle to explain the work to them in plain, simple English? With this new Dung Beetle book by artist Miriam Elia--a tribute to and a parody of the much-loved British Ladybird early learning children's books of the 1960s--anyone can learn about contemporary art and understand many of its key themes. Join John and Susan on their exciting journey through the art exhibition, where, with Mummy's help, they will discover the real meaning of all the contemporary artworks, from empty rooms to vagina paintings or giant inflatable dogs.
The 2014 limited edition of We Go to the Gallery was threatened with a lawsuit by Penguin UK (owners of the Ladybird imprint), which was withdrawn following a recent change in UK copyright law allowing for parody and satire.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Midwest Book Review

Clint Travis

Whether interpreted as a scathing criticism of modern art, a primordial expression of the futility of life, or a hilarious twist on sanitized children's literature, We Go to the Gallery is unforgettable.

We Go to the Gallery

We Go to the GalleryThis sweetly sharp artworld satire parodies the beloved '60s British Ladybird series of early learning pocket books, enabling children to "smoothly internalize all of the debilitating middle class self hatred" contained in contemporary artworks. "New words on every page will also help your child to identify core concepts, so that they may repeat them at dinner parties to impress educated guests… Printed in bold colors and written in clear, simple English," each book in this new series from Dung Beetle Learning "will drag families in to the darkest recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit."
