The Popular Vote ...

I realised we should have said thanks to all our readers as apparently we also won the 'popular' vote at Leeds for the Northern Art Prize, this was conducted on-line ("these are our people" - KG) and for 'fun', but very nice to know anyway.

Still you can't please everyone as this particularly enjoyable comment from the Blog that followed the wildly inaccurate if entertaining Guardian article shows...

"'Bata-ville' is the cenematic (his spelling) equivalent of someone scraping the fingernails down a blackboard and calling it art." from Mikestate ...

I hope he's actually seen the film, you get the impression that a lot of the comments relating to Norma's pickled onions ('pickled onions as art scandal' gives you the general vibe) might not have seen the show or realised that the onions aren't actually being proffered in isolation as 'art'.

Still I'm looking forward to the 'bundle of commissions' that Martin Wainwright mentions ... perhaps he knows something we don't?
