I had a dream the other night about being third up to pitch for a major art commission and the group before us used artists to act out their proposal. My team in contrast consisted of curators and a lighting designer – we looked at each other terrified and wished to pull out immediately.

However the same committees could be accused of ignoring the growing trend of thematic exhibitions.
