Fun and games

Here's another list for your entertainment, this one from Rob Garrett ex Creative New Zealand. The artists selected for a book to be published and distributed at the next Venice Biennale follows. We have also included the curators responsible for the selection. Word on the street is that each curator, as part of the deal, got to include one artist without debate. For a few minutes of fun try matching curators with their favourite artist. All entries welcome, and a small prize for the most convincing set of matches.

Amundson, Billy Apple, Eve Armstrong, Andrew Barber, Mladen Bizumic, Stella Brennan, Bill Culbert, Judy Darragh, Julian Dashper, Simon Denny, Bill Hammond, David Hatcher, Sean Kerr, Maddie Leach, Jae Hoon Lee, Saskia Leek, Andrew McLeod, Daniel Malone, Judy Millar, Dane Mitchell, Ani O'Neil, Michael Parekowhai, John Reynolds, Peter Robinson, Jim Speers, Sriwhana Spong, Yuk King Tan, Yvonne Todd, Francis Upritchard, Ronnie Van Hout, Rohan Wealleans
