The ICA blows the Foster Prize . . .

It seems mildly incredible, but the ICA has awarded the Foster Prize to Kelly Sherman (above, photo from the Boston Globe). Yes, that's the prize-winning work behind her (easily, I'm afraid, the weakest on view from the Foster nominees). Nothing against Kelly - she's certainly smart (and sexy), and maybe someday she'll be an interesting artist. As for the ICA - this is why people never really took this museum seriously; the building may be new, but it's housing the same old crew . . .
