Also on Saturday I went to the Brooklyn Museum of Art's new Gilbert & George show, where I happily stumbled upon the pair of artists being interviewed before a small group. Here's my personal highlight, best as I can recall.

"How do you feel about all the changes taking place in London these days?" the interviewer asked.

"It's wonderful," the taller, non-Italian artist said. "We love progress. We love watching the neighborhoods change. Just down the street from us, in fact, a men's lavatory turned into a restaurant."

"Eat in or takeaway," the other added. "Just like when it was a loo."
