Don't waste your time...it's not worth wasting on the nothing which is, empty Ebrington; the eternal symbol of the lack of imagination or wit amongst the local political establishment and their property developing pals

Although this was an interesting exhibition showcasing the work of the Turner Prize finalists, I was disappointed insofar as the work on show lacked true substance. For my money, the 'real' Turner Prize exhibition was held across the river at The Shirt Factory - The...More
