The Turner Prize is the UK’s foremost award for contemporary art.
Now in its 29th year, the Turner Prize will be presented in Derry~Londonderry in 2013, as part of the UK City of Culture programme.
This will be the first time the prize has been held outside England and the second time it has been shown at a venue outside Tate, following its success at BALTIC, Gateshead in 2011.
The Turner Prize was inaugurated in 1984 to celebrate new developments in contemporary art. It is awarded each year to a British artist under fifty for an outstanding exhibition or presentation of their work in the preceding twelve months. Nominations are invited each year, and it is judged by an independent jury. The four shortlisted artists present their work in an exhibition before the winner is announced in December.
This year the four artists who have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2013 are: Laure Prouvost, Tino Sehgal, David Shrigley and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. The exhibition will be held at Ebrington in Derry-Londonderry as part of the UK City of Culture 2013.
Over recent decades the Turner Prize has played a significant role in provoking debate about visual art and promoting public interest in contemporary British art. It has become widely recognised as one of the most important and prestigious awards for the visual arts in Europe.
