A Google alert brought this Times Online article, giving a first glimpse of the John Moores 25 Open Painting competition shortlist,to my attention - a bit sensationalist and some unfair reactions to the Chapman’s co-judging the show. After seeing their show at the Tate recently I have no doubt that they’d make excellent judges for JM25. They make no mention of art critic Sacha Craddock being on the judging panel.
Former winner and Juror Graham Crowley notes:
“There’s no art for airports or corporate foyers in this show. There is a great range in subject matter and context, and an urgency to the exhibition that I hadn’t anticipated”
The article includes a slideshow of some shortlisted entries, and the full shortlist’s here: https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/walker/
and the show opens in… 57 days.
