Twisting & Turning

The Turner Prize shortlist will go on display at the Tate Britain today, and I bet that a fair amount of folk have already prepared their sneers for “this conceptual art rubbish”. And of course, on the other side of the fence, the art brigade will respond with their own sneers at those old fogeys who can’t deal with anything more challenging than a stud by Stubbs – or worse, a sleazy Vettriano post card.

Somehow, you have to chose your allegiance, not on the grounds of whether or not you like the work of art - but what sort of person you want to be:

Old fogey?
Or arty-farty?
