Turner Prize 2015

Tramway, Glasgow
Visual & Performing Arts

 

One of Europe’s most important and prestigious contemporary visual art awards comes to Scotland for the first time. 
The Turner Prize, established in 1984, is awarded to a British artist under 50 for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the 12 months preceding 17 April 2015. It is intended to promote public discussion of new developments in contemporary British art and is widely recognised as one of the most important awards for the visual arts in Europe. The Turner Prize award is £40,000 with £25,000 going to the winner and £5,000 each for the other shortlisted artists.
Every other year, the prize leaves Tate Britain and is presented at a venue outside the capital. This year that venue will be Tramway in Glasgow.
Admission to the exhibition of work by the four shortlisted artists will be free and will run from October 2015 until January 2016 with the winning artist being announced at a special ceremony in December 2015.
