The Turner prize nominations were announced this week and I found them exciting. Four unexpected names, artists I respect and work I want to see more of. And then Jonathan Jones posted a deplorable rant about the lack of merit and talent on display and that made me as angry as can be. Art is at the core of my world and I like reading things about it that make me pay attention to the work. So that's what I'm going to try to do here.

Tacita Deans's new exhibition, Craneway Event, opens May 13 at Frith Street Gallery. The stills are mesmerising.
