IF WEARY passengers can find solace in art, so too can those in hospital. Patients at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital can divert their attention from health service cuts by wandering through the building's impressive art collection, which includes works by Howard Hodgkin and Patrick Heron. The most recent acquisition is Allen Jones's 60ft sculpture The Acrobat, unveiled yesterday, the cost of which ( pounds 100,000) was shared by the Foundation for Sport and the Arts and a team of benefactors including Lord Palumbo and Sir Richard Attenborough.
THESE TWO celebrities must be thankful not to be featured in a show currently at the Dash Gallery in London's Marsh Wall. For 'Manipulations', 'cultural terrorist' Pete Lloyd Lewis has created works of art using photographs of 'Eurotrash' appropriated from Hello magazine. Julio Iglesias's head has burst into flames and David Hasselhof has become the Angel of Death. Proving, though, that art is really for the people, the artist Melinda Styles has tapped another rich photographic source for her show at The Agency in Evelyn St, SE8: the snaps of 'Readers' Wives' from pornographic magazines.
