Charles Saatchi messes with ‘USA Today’

SaatchiYou’d think Charles Saatchi would know better than to name an upcoming art exhibit after a trademarked name, but from the looks of things, we guess not. The New York Post’s Page Six reports this morning that art collector Saatchi is naming an upcoming art show “USA Today.” It’s planned for England in the fall, and may eventually show up stateside. To make matters worse, the exhibit (which includes this piece by Wangechi Mutu) is expected to be filled with “tawdry” art, the details of which we’d rather not go into here, but it’s described more fully in the Post. As for what the people at USA Today think, they didn’t return the Post’s phone calls last night.
