Okay, fine, it's not a piece of art. But hey, it's everywhere.

Yes, dear readers, it’s back from the grave. Erm, no, we don’t mean Art Stage Singapore (although, yes, it’s back, too) but the RAT’s scorecards!

It’s simple really. Pick an artwork at random. Think about it for five to seven seconds (or thereabouts), which apparently is the average time a person looks at an artwork. Then rate it. From one (lowest) to five (highest).

But I haven’t really done this for Art Stage. I mean, the quality has generally been quite good for the past two editions. But then again, I’ve whipped it out for exhibitions and smaller art fairs in the past, so why not for the biggest one in town?

There’s one minor twist, though. I got a friend of mine to do it, just for kicks. Check it out and see if you agree with the ratings. Enjoy!
