Contemporary, Contemptuous, or Conceited?

The “art establishment” once again shows how inane and conceited it is by awarding £25,000 to Mark Wallinger for a shaky 154 minute long video of a man walking around a gallery in a bear costume. He is prize winner of the 2007 Turner Prize, Britain’s foremost contemporary art award.

Lauding their lack of perspective, the Tate said that there were parallels between Wallinger and the Berlin gallery, and Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel: “Both artists were interested in transforming spaces.”
