More spectacularly terrible public art is unveiled...

Sited at Fulham Football Club's grounds, Craven Cottage, for no other reason than that Muhammad al Fayed could find nowhere else to put it, the statue of Michael Jackson unveiled on the 3rd April 2011 was described by Louisa Buck at The Art Newspaper as being 'almost so bad it's almost good'. I like the fact she doesn't commit herself to saying it's quite bad enough to be good. 

Actually, Michael Jackson did once attend a Fulham game (they were playing Wigan in 1999, fact fans) although whether the event was worthy of such commemoration is debatable.

There's an entertaining video here on the BBC website about it:  but weirdly nowhere does the name of the artist appear - funny, that.
