Spartacus Chetwynd, et al.

This year's shortlist of Turner Prize nominees are Spartacus Chetwynd, Luke Fowler, Paul Noble and Elizabeth Price, two filmakers, an illustrator and a performance artist. Chetwynd, pictured above left, is odds on favourite.

According to the jury, the nominees share “a common sense of humanity and lack of arrogance” and an interest in the 1960s and 1970s - the eras in which they were growing up.

Outrage here.

Related thought: It's not like Alan Moore ever planned to write a sequel to Watchmen.
