Art Party Review

Image for Art Party

Set around 2013's Scarborough conference, this kinda-doc charts the battle of artists and campaigners to sway the powers-that-be - specifically Michael Gove - with their message of the art for all. Polite subversion reigns on the seafront.

★★★★

A heartfelt and noble cause is spectacularly ill-served in this pseudo-documentary record of a 2013 protest event in Scarborough against Michael Gove’s art education policies. The rhetoric is sound, but the art is average, the music mediocre and the satire self-indulgent and crass.

Clunking and ill-executed, this a piece of art that wouldn't even make Tony Hart's gallery.
