Members from dissident Russian music/art collective Pussy Riot say they did not have trouble coming to Singapore to attend the inaugural Prudential Eye Awards, which were held on Saturday night at Suntec City Mall. They were in town because their work was nominated in the digital/video category of the awards, but they did not win. They say not winning does not bother them the least bit. "We are people who engage in social issues and political activism. Art is a means through which we can speak. This is a good chance for us to meet with you, to visit Asia, and to make contacts here.'"
