"Hot Florescent Room-2062"

There have been many interesting exhibitions at this gallery - but it tends to be about 35C (in the winter) and has convenience store style over-lighting with banks of (too many) florescent lights.  As one of the artists exhibiting there explained to me once, the idea is that people's homes are similarly over-lit with florescent lighting, so it's best(?) to mimic that in the gallery so they're not surprised to see a picture they buy under one kind of lighting look different when it is later (after purchasing) put under different lighting in the customer's home.  Maybe the gallery owner will change their mind with the increasing number of people who are opting for yellow-tinted LED lighting (mimicking incandescent lighting) in their homes....
