Put it up the flag pole

Who is going to judge the Walters Prize? Looking at past years we can figure the Auckland Art Gallery and the Prize patrons will be trying to match their previous successes. Let’s face it, getting the inventor of modern curation Harald Szeemann to to judge the first Prize was remarkable enough but to top that by scoring Documenta curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev was truly impressive. There’s one obvious name that could carry that sort of clout and our guess is they’ll be on the phone to ├╝ber curator  Hans Ulrich Obrist. What are the chances?
