This year's Turner Prize went to a heterosexual transvestite potter. Grayson Perry accepted the award at the Tate Britain gallery in drag. Not just in drag; he was dressed up as his alter-ego Claire, looking like a bad hallucination of a six-year-old girl in red pumps, a pink satiny dress, and bows.
Update - I can't believe I missed this quote from Perry in the Guardian article: "If you call your pot art you're being pretentious. If you call your shark art you're being bold and philosophical."
