Turner Prize 2007, Tate Liverpool

Taxi Project, Turner Prize 2007, Tate Liverpool

Great to see Tate Liverpool so busy, with Turner Prize tickets snapped up well in advance. But sadly this year’s nominees are an underwhelming bunch and there’s nothing here to wind up the Daily Mail.

The Turner Prize should instead go to the Tate PR team for ‘Taxi Project’. They brought some of Liverpool’s black cab drivers together to talk about art and stuff and having primed them sent them off to challenge their passengers. So having explored the art you can climb into a black cab and listen to the debate with the passengers projected on screen.

It’s a far more interesting than the real Turner Prize artists who aren’t really that bad, but simply lack that winning X factor.
