The Tate Britain has announced the shortlisted entrants for Britain’s most anticipated art award, the Turner Prize.

Spartacus Chetwynd

Spartacus Chetwynd, Luke Fowler, Paul Noble and Elizabeth Price, will compete for the £250,000 prize, which will be presented on December 3rd – they will also present their work in an exhibition at the Tate Britain in October.  Works this year span the categories of sculpture, technical drawing, film and performance, and explore ideas of consumerism, history as well as social issues.

Established in 1984, the prize often provokes debate about contemporary art, and was last year presented at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead with sculpture artist Martin Boyce as the winner for his urban landscape installation.

Keep watching the site for more Turner Prize news, and the winner as he or she is announced later this year. – Samantha Fox
