One of the best-known prizes for visual arts in the world comes to the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry.

About

Opening at the Herbert this autumn, the exhibition aims to promote public debate around new developments in British art.  

For the first time, a Turner Prize jury selected a shortlist consisting entirely of artist collectives. Tackling pressing issues in society today, the five shortlisted collectives are:

  • Array Collective 
  • Black Obsidian Sound System 
  • Cooking Sections 
  • Gentle/Radical 
  • Project Art Works 

Their work encompasses films, installations, and interdisciplinary practices, as well as socially engaged programmes reflecting on solidarity and community demonstrated in response to the pandemic. All nominees work closely and continuously with communities across the breadth of the UK to inspire social change through art.  

Established in 1984, the prize is named after the radical British painter JMW Turner (1775-1851). The Turner Prize winner is awarded £25,000 with £10,000 going to each of the others shortlisted.
