The Turn-Off Prize

I was down in London a couple of weeks ago with my wife, Mandy, and we decided to go and check out the Turner Prize Exhibition at Tate Britain. It was £24 for two tickets. You have to wonder what the quality of the art that didn’t make it to the shortlist was like if what was on show was really the best art in the UK. The most entertaining part of the whole experience was reading the comments board outside the exhibition, which also gathered the biggest crowd…for the longest time! Here are a few of the comments from the day we were there.

    So poor was the exhibition that the *Stuckists didn’t think it was worth wasting energy in their usual protest.

    *The Stuckists, led by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson, first set up camp outside Tate Britain, the venue for the prize, as an objection to conceptual and postmodern art in 2000, with a call for a return to art with values and paintbrushes.
