Arty 25: spring/summer 2009

Arty is 25! And to celebrate we are looking at Fame.

Why crave fame with all the media intrusion and public scrutiny that accompanies it? Surely it is much better to quietly acquire a fortune by inventing a widget or being a Harley Street doctor - all of the luxury with none of the inconvenience. But fame is what more and more people declare they want, and judging by the endless pool of candidates clambering to appear on reality TV shows they must want it really bad.

Here at Arty we don't just want to be famous
we also want to talk about it.
Our Fame rosta features...

Kim L Pace with Frenzy
Gavin Toye on Celebrification
