'Platitudes about Contemporary Art - Popular and Provocative, but True' (Frieze Talks London 2009)


Is it really elitist, confusing and irrelevant?

Is it really peddled by unskilled charlatans conning the general public?


Will poor artists really be more inventive and radical because they are not corrupted by the market?

Turner Prize-nominated Roger Hiorns, 2010 Berlin Biennal curator Kathrin Rhomberg and The Guardian's Adrian Searle consider three of the most common criticisms and truisms leveled at contemporary art, in a panel chaired by Tom Morton.
