LR writer Mike Watson has an article in the June 2010 editon of Art Monthly.
See here for internet blurb for that edition:
Mike Watson on Mark McGowan’s pre-election provocations
‘While McGowan demonstrated the ability of art to mimic politics very convincingly, he also demonstrated the still existing freedom of art from politics. That nothing useful should be done with this freedom from responsibility by artists generally may be the real pity.’
