"Do these people have friends?"

Were all the nominations this year particularly loneliness themed or is this just random?

I really enjoyed last year's Turner Prize nominations exhibition (at Tate Liverpool). There was some really good work in it -and the comments/interactive area was really creative too. Would you say this year is worth going to?

Swamprose, this is a small sample section from a full room of comments as you exit the Turner Prize exhibition at Tate Britain. It was the best room in the show.

As you go through the show, the language used to introduce each artist captured exactly what alienates people from art - jargonistic crapola.

Taniwha, first thanks for The Package, really enjoying it. One track of Miles has more art in it than the whole of this show.

That said, it has its moments. Lecky's stuff is thought-provoking. I don't recall anything problematic for kids, though it was a bit of a lightening tour oiled with alcohol ;-)

OJ, there was no loneliness theme - the writer was hinting perhaps at the need for some constructive criticism or judicious editing or getting a life!

To be totally honest, it's not my cup of char - I don't much like video-based art of which much of the show consists.

No problem AA. Porgy and Bess is a remarkable album in my opinion. That's the Miles I miss when he went all funk jazz.
