Looks like New Zealand Artists are going to be the next big thing


I read this reprint of a press release about something called the Walters Prize which sounds vaguely similar to the Sobey Prize, the Governor General's prize, the Pierre Ayot prize, or any number of ther prizes offered in art. But the thing that caught my eye were these lines: "She published the first monograph on the work of South African artist William Kentridge" and "the first monograph on Canadian artist Janet Cardiff." Or in other words it does appear that Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, the judge for the Walters Prize (and the reason for the press release) could be called a king maker. I'll try to remember to check out who wins the prize.
