Jasmine Maddock on Yoko Ono's installation Skyladders in St. Luke's church:
"It's a concept, but it's a concept that's a bit of a joke. It's just a bunch of stepladders. They've not actually been painted. It doesn't say anything about Liverpool culture directly or indirectly. It reminds me of going to a very weird jumble sale, where everything is ladders and that's all you can buy. The space hasn't been used adequately at all. It could have been filled with so much more beauty."

Jasmine Maddock on the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize in the Walker Art Gallery:
This exhibition is great, because it's actually artwork, rather than stepladders and videos. It's traditional art, but with a twist. It's imaginative and creative, and it's everything that art in Liverpool should be.

Jasmine Maddock is the founder of The Merseyside Stuckists and was an exhibitor in the Stuckists An Antidote to the Ghastly Turner Prize.

Czech Stuckists against "Czech Turner Prize",
the Jindrich Chalupecky Prize

A Czech gallerist was impressed by a success of the exhibition Stuck in the Middle of November which was organized last year by the Prague Stuckists as a counterpart to the Jindrich Chalupecky Prize, the most important Czech art prize and the Czech equivalent to the Turner Prize, dominated by conceptualism.

He has decided to sponsor the exhibition of the Prague Stuckists every year as a counterpart to the Jindrich Chalupecky Prize, with the private view on the day of the announcement of the winner of the Chalupecky. The venue for an exhibition of finalists of the Chalupecky rotates annually between Prague and Brno. In 2007, it was hosted in Prague, this year in Brno. That´s why Stuck in the Middle of November II is going to be held in Brno.

Contrary to the Chalupecky which is traditionally organised without a catalogue, there will be one of the Stuckists exhibition again.
