A pile of rubbish that wasn't even created by this guy is worth $15,000.

I don't think she is saying that it's worth $15,000. That was the prize money for the award.

Actually Dane Mitchell should have got $20,000. The other art award held in Hamilton in the Gardens every year has that amount, not $15,000, for prize money. He was robbed.

'But Waikato Museum director Kate Vusoniwailala leapt to the defence of judge Charlotte Huddleston, saying it was "an excellent decision" which had helped achieve the objective of getting people talking about art.'

Well Kate, I don't think it necessarily got "people talking about art". Maybe it just got them talking about rubbish.
Given the disrespect shown by both Charlotte Huddleston and Kate Vusoniwailala to the other contributing artists to this award, it should not be called a "contemporary" art award but a contemptuous one. If these two "visionaries" think that these comments are strictly my creative imagination, and are offensive and rubbish, would they consider forwarding a cheque in the mail to me I wonder.

Oh i get it, it s like a virus that appears late capitalist but is actually a political pose of a gestural nature designed to cause process intrigue, in the hope that practice would rub off in a new way, unlike perpetuating the usual thesis response from a larger notion, here is a self contained meta argument, a meme, with a context tone of humor.
