For the Stuckists, an anti conceptual art group of artists who have been protesting against the prize since 2000, it was this year unforgivably dull.

Charles Thomson, co-founder of the group, said: “It is appalling that innocent victims expecting to see challenging art should end up bored to death. I have lost several friends in the last few weeks.

“There needs to be immediate action. The Turner prize should be shut down before more people end up meeting their demise from sheer boredom."

Art Clown of the Year Award 2016

The anonymous hooded and totally impartial judges were deadlocked by the appalling low standard of entries and were forced for the first time to make a joint award to both Nicholas Deller and Jeremy Serota.

And the four nominees were

Jeremy Deller
Jeremy Deller
Jeremy Deller
Sir NIcholas Serota
Jeremy Deller

Jeremy Deller

The anonymous hooded and totally impartial judges are pleased to nominate Jeremy Deller, once winner of the Boring Turner Prize, for his crtiical incisiveness about the Stuckists on the BBC2 programme What Has the Turner Prize Ever Done for Us (19.12.16):

"The first thing about them is they're very bad painters. They go on about how great painting is and all that stuff, but actually, technically, not many of them are that good. And I'm sure most conceptual artists can paint just as well as, or better than, those Stuckists, weirdly. They're the UKIP of art, aren't they really."

Sir Nicholas Serota

The anonymous hooded and totally impartial judges are pleased to nominate Sir Nicholas Serota, once Chairman of the Boring Jeremy Deller Prize, and soon to be once Director of the Tate gallery, thank God, for his bare-faced lie :

“The rules of course were invented after we had flouted them.”

After Sue Macgregor asked him on BBC Radio 4 programme The Reunion: Tate Modern (23.9.16) about the Tate’s purchase in 2005 of its trustee Chris Ofili’s work, The Upper Room: “The Charity Commission said you didn’t quite follow the rules here.”
