… according to this work in the window of the Gertrude contemporary art space. After attending Art Melbourne 2008 today at the Royal Exhibition building in Carlton shortly after seeing this work on Gertrude St, I have to agree. The show was rubbish. The excellent Hazel Donney Sex Tourist work was the highlight of 2007 and the controversy was so much fun. Without it 2008 was dull and boring, full of tedious paiintings and drawings of dogs and cricketers. Too suburban for me.
