Reader-curated Art?

Sarah Jeffries - Look Over There (2006)The Guardian newspaper in association with Saatchi's Your Gallery has posted its first "reader-curated" art show, which is online now (click the title link). Watch out for Lotta de Beus' Chandelier (2005) my favourite. Unfortunately, this idea isn't as novel as it could have been, because it followed the usual patronizing format of having a panel of alleged experts select a shortlist (30 artists) for the punters to vote on (10 artists). Next time, Guardian, cut out the alleged experts and let the punters choose for themselves.
