Visual Arts

Not standing

Amidst the bustle of the festival I'd almost forgotten I'd be getting an email today.

Subject: One and Other: Not chosen this time...

We have now picked the winners of places in October and we are sorry to tell you that you have not been picked on this occasion.

So that's that then. I'll not spend time on the pinth.

While the press has focussed on the zanier side of plinth dwellers, I'm looking forward to seeing the artwork which results from the past three months. With hindsight will One & Other have succeeded in showcasing a representative cross-section of British society or will it just have been a platform for failed Big Brother contestants?

Thankfully I won't be judged with the rest.
