Art & Design: Turner Prize, Tate Britain

Set up in 1984 to promote new developments in art, the Tate Museum’s annual Turner Prize acts as a “barometer” of contemporary art.

Recognized as one of Europe’s most prestigious awards, the prize is judged by an independent jury and given to an artist that is under fifty years old, born, lives or works in Britain. On October 5th, the four finalists unveiled their work at Tate Britain. The diverse nominees include painter Dexter Dalwood, Spanish artist Angela de la Cruz, sound installation artist Susan Philipsz and The Otolith Group – a collective that explores sound and text through the moving image.

The Turner Prize is both an award and a provocative catalyst for conversation in the art world.

The Turner Prize exhibit is on view until January 3rd at Tate Britain. This year’s winner will be announced in December.
