Turner Prize is far from picture perfect
"You can almost guarantee The Turner Prize to cause a rumpus for one reason or another but this year's row was an unusual spat between the photographers who'd arrived to cover the exhibition's launch and Tate Britain.
"The gallery handed photographers a contract which included a sub-clause which warned them not to broadcast or publish any filming, photographs or text that would "result in any adverse publicity for the Tate". The contracts got torn up and the photographers were left cooling their heels outside.
"Eventually, the Tate backed down and opened its doors. In the meantime, print journalists were given a tour of the exhibition, which opens to the public today. The verdict? Neither especially good nor especially bad, but moderately mediocre."
