Best Art Blog

SCENE AND HERD
ART FAG CITY
ANITA’S ‘ART’ BLOG
BRIAN SHOLIS
CATHEDRAL OF SHIT!

Winner: ANITA. We can never compete with such a high profile line up; Madonna, Stormin’ Norman Rosenthal, Nick Serota, Jon Bon Jovi, err, Graham Hudson, David Blandy and Max Wigram. So the extremes of the art celebrity scale then.

Here’s some reminders of her brilliance for your viewing pleasure.

Winner? All of them, in their own special way.

Moodiest Gallerist

NICKY VERBER
TOBY WEBSTER
ROB TUFNELL
MARTIN MCGOWAN

    Interesting, No women in there. Can you think of any moody women gallerists? Answers on a postcard (or comment, whichever you prefer). Oh, these lot, who’s won you say? God I’m bored of this. They can all win, miserable bastards.

and finally, the Cathedral Of Shit Award for the Person We’d Most Like To Just Change Career or Disappear Entirely As They Don’t Even Serve Us As An Object Of Mockery.

    GORMLEY/QUINN/TAYLOR-WOOD/HIRST/EMIN.


Special Mention for 2009 goes to SARAH THORNTON. For being special and talented.

There’s a few of us here at CoS… all with a different opinion on our end of year awards. That’s right, we’re individuals.
The first result are in from… hmmm… let’s call him ‘DAVE’. More to follow from the other STEVEs and IANs. Oh, and ‘SUSANs’ of course.
