An ace take away caff with quite a nice Gauguin attached to it

As mentioned earlier the history of coffee and its affiliation with cultural marketing in England can be traced back to the 1980’s.  So if cultural marketing were consciously dealing with its own historical traumas Tate’s recent campaign to promote its Gauguin would constitute a great and funny example of cultural marketing going self-referential.  Undoubtedly it highlights the level of acceptance in the ways art and culture is being promoted nowadays.
