Discover the four artists shortlisted for this year’s award.
Set up in 1984, The Turner Prize remains one of the best-known visual arts prizes. The prize is awarded to an artist for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the preceding year.
By championing the early career of British artists, the Turner Prize has played a large part in the growing public interest in contemporary art in the UK.
The four shortlisted artists for the Turner Prize 2016 are: Michael Dean, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten and Josephine Pryde.
Although varied as ever, the artists share some common interests: much of their work is sculptural, albeit incorporating a range of mediums. Much of the work references areas of visual culture such as advertising, design, fashion and the built environment. Their works often reﬂect and assume the growing ubiquity of the internet, and through their own practices they explore how written and visual language convey meaning.
Showcasing highlights from across the artists’ careers and including exclusive interviews as well as detailed career biographies, this small but jam-packed book provides a succinct and illuminating accompaniment to the prize.
