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)
"Since 2000 the Turner show has often attracted protests from traditionalist art activist group the Stuckists, who want a return to figurative painting." - France 24 , Breitbart (US), Google from AFP (3.12.12)

Nathalie Zwimpfer in Basel, Switzerland on Turner Prize and Stuckists in Art Review blog (3.12.12)
"2000 The year international art group the Stuckists instituted the Real Turner Prize, for painters. They also staged their first demonstration against the prize, dressed as clowns, protesting that 'the only artist who wouldn't be in danger of winning the Turner Prize is Turner'." - In Numbers: The Turner Prize, Daily Mail (1.12.12) p. 40.
TURNER PRIZE IS BORING
Clown of the Year Award 2012 goes to critic Richard Dorment of The
Daily Telegraph for his asinine comment on the Turner Prize
winner's pretentious film which trivialised a fire in a Woolworth
store that killed 10 people:
Turner Prize demo
"As they have for twelve years, Stuckists demonstrated outside Tate Britain against the waste of space that is the Turner Prize. I went to pay my respects to the doughty few this morning in the driving rain. Since I began researching conceptual art for a satirical crime novel, I have admired Stuckists..."

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....
