Art e-Facts 78: Mark Leckey


Mark Leckey was this evening announced as the winner of the 2008 Turner Prize winner by Australian Rock Star NIck Cave at a ceremony at Tate Britain.

One of the most controversial Turner Prize exhibitions for many years the exhibition has been vilified by visitors and critics alike. Leckey was robust in his response to the critics however dismissing the British critical establishment as having an unhealthy interest in ‘mid-brow’ art.
