FYI this is the email I sent: "Just got the news that Frieze Art Fair have said the painting below cannot be shown at the Resonance fm stand curated by Bob & Roberta Smith. The painting was due to be sold to raise money for the radio station. I wonder if the criticisms I made of frieze in this debate with Matthew Slotover http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/blogon/view_video/5096/debate:_art_fairs_are_about_money_not_art or my organisation of The Free Art Fair had anything to do with the decision. THIS is the painting http://www.jasperjoffe.com/cheer%20up%20love.jpg" To answer your question: to forbid a radio station to sell a painting for charity at your artfair, looks mighty petty. I am prepared to believe any other explanation besides vindictive bullying and control freakery on the part of frieze. Over to your mr. slotover.
