Frieze 'highlights'

Now that the Frieze Art Fair is over for another year, The Telegraph has posted a slide show of the fair's "highlights" (title link). Highlights! Elmgreen and Dragset's The Fruit of Knowledge (2011) is about as good as it gets, and that's eminently silly. As for the rest of it, congratulate yourself on saving £35 by not going to the show. What is the purpose of filling a tent with all this junk? The obvious answer is to fleece trendy punters who know nothing about art, including curators of galleries showing modern art. The Tate bought a couple of things. But there is another purpose. The fair has become a promenade for wannabee celebrities to strut their stuff.
