The Open’s judges – artist and curator Kevin Hunt, independent curators Day + Gluckman and Phoenix gallery curator Matt Burrows all spoke about the difficulty of this year’s decision due to the incredibly high standard of work. Lucy Day explained, ‘One of the things about such a diverse range of practice is that it makes judging nigh on impossible. We did some serious debate, discussion and arguing. All positive because we simply couldn’t choose between a group of people, all of who we would have loved to give the award.’
