“The exhibition attempts an alternative history that pointedly addresses the question of the quality and relevance of painting. The open-ended formulation ‘Bad painting-good art,’ based on a quotation from Neil Jenney (whose work is featured in the show), approaches the question controversially, and is likely to be seen as a provocation. This is not against the intentions of the show. (Kob, 6)”
