An art critic has apologised for accidentally destroying an installation at a prestigious art fair in Mexico. Avelina Lésper placed an empty drinks can near the work to show her disapproval when it shattered. The installation, by Mexican artist Gabriel Rico, was on display at the OMR Gallery in Mexico City. The work consisted of a large pane of glass with random objects such as a football and a feather inside and is worth an estimated $20,000 (£15,400).
