Bristol Museum battles to host "rubbish bag" artist
Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is competing with three other attractions around the country to host radical artist Gavin Turk.
The Bristol City Council-run museum in Park Row is competing in an online public vote to host the artist for a residency.
They are up against the Foundling Museum, in London, Holburne Museum in Bath and the Time Machine Funtington museum in Chichester.
The controversial artist is probably best known for his “sculpture” entitled Bag – which to all appearances is a black bin bag. Turk was awarded the Jack Goldhill Sculpture Prize for the work by the Royal Academy of Arts in 2000.
