Tate defininition of Stuckism

Founded by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson in 1999, Stuckism is
an art movement that is anti-conceptual and champions figurative painting.
Thomson derived the name from an insult by the Young British Artist, Tracey Emin, who told her ex-lover
Childish that his art was ¿stuck, stuck, stuck¿. Since its modest beginnings
Stuckism is now an international art movement with over a hundred members
worldwide. Childish left in 2001, but the group continues its confrontational
agenda, demonstrating against events like the Turner Prize or Beck¿s Futures
which the movement argues are among a number of art world events controlled by a
small number of art world insiders. " -
