The Turner Prize, organised by Tate, is awarded to a British artist under the age of 50 for an outstanding exhibition in the preceding year. The Turner Prize introduces us to new artists and new ideas in contemporary art and previous winners include Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry and Gillian Wearing.
This year’s shortlisted artists are Assemble, Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers. You can see an exhibition of their artwork at Tramway and judge for yourself who the winner should be.
The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive programme of workshops, talks, tours and activities for people of all ages to get involved and be inspired by the creativity on show.
This year's Turner Prize Jury are:
- Mr Alistair Hudson, Director, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art
- Jan Verwoert, Critic and Curator
- Ms Joanna Mytkowska, Director, Warsaw Museum of Modern Art
- Ms Kyla McDonald, Artistic Director, Glasgow Sculpture Studios
The Jury is chaired by Alex Farquharson, Director of Tate Britain.
