HYPOCRISYSir Nicholas Serota, director of the Tate gallery, speaks out for artistic freedom: "Artists afraid of losing sponsors ‘are self-censoring,’" he intrepidly asserts. Read it in The Independent (30.5.13). Charles Thomson said, "Serota is the censor. When Ivan Massow dared to step out of line and criticise conceptual art as tat, Serota said to him, 'They should have sacked you two weeks ago'. So much for freedom of expression. As a tutor from the Royal Academy once said to me, 'There's plenty of people here who agree with you, but they won't say anything, because they're afraid if they offend Serota, he won't buy their work for the Tate.'"

Charles Thomson on Turner Prize winner, Elizabeth Price, as a "wannabe documentary maker who has a place on late night TV, when no one’s watching". Quoted p.8 of The Times (4.11.12)
"Avant-garde? Derričre-garde I think. Dreary, pretentious, superficial, irrelevant. I don't mean the subject (as in Price's Woolworth fire - that is obviously tragic and serious) but the artistic treatment of it. If she'd have done the same thing to the Hillsborough disaster, there would be outrage. A straightforward documentary would have done the subject justice, but then there would be nothing to distinguish it from any other straightforward documentary, so in order to claim the status of art, it has to be given a mind-numbing treatment of split screens and repetitive captions, all of which are about the status of the artist, not the diginity or significance of the subject." Charles Thomson post on Jonathan Jones blog (4.12.12)

"Picketing the awards ceremony, as they do every year, were a handful of masked artists known as the Stuckists, who favor figurative painting and excoriate the conceptual art that, they say, is championed by Tate. 'Elizabeth Price is a wannabe documentary maker who has a place on late night TV, when no one’s watching,' said the movement’s co-founder Charles Thomson in a release e-mailed before the winner announcement. He made equally disparaging remarks about the other three contestants." Bloomberg and Businessweek (3.12.12)

Stuckism mentioned in long-running BBC1 afternoon drama series, Doctors, series 14, episode titled "Virtuous Reality" by Jeremy Hylton Davies (17.9.12.). An artist explains to his friend about an "Interview with an American arts programme. Would not get off the idea that I was Stuckist. Said, 'Could have been a Stuckist, but stuck to what he was brilliant at ... Stuckist! It's like asking Corbusier if he did half-timbered.'" It was available to watch for a week on BBC iPlayer, relevant scene at 04:23, but that has expired now....
