The Shortlist Exhibition for the Royal British Society of Sculptors' FIRST@108 Public Art Award 2011 opens tomorrow at the Studio Gallery in London and continues until 25 March (title link). The show gives you the chance to comment on the five artists' maquette proposals prior to the jury's selection of the winner, who will receive £10,000 to produce his or her finished piece. Judging by the photos I've found, including Chief and Venus by Nick Turvey ARBS, the Society has abandoned figurative sculpture in favour of meaningless junk. Shame. In case you're wondering, that's Chief on the left and Venus on the right. She looks like the Michelin Man deflated.
