Details

Turner Prize, one of the world’s most renowned art prizes, is awarded by Tate to an artist who has exhibited outstanding work in the previous year. The four shortlisted artists for 2017 will exhibit their work at Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, from September with the overall winner announced in early December.

Through genres such as portraiture, landscape and still life, the four artists explore how art is able to respond to political and social upheaval.

WHAT IS THE TURNER PRIZE?
The Turner Prize is one of the world’s most renowned art prizes, awarded annually by Tate to an artist who has exhibited outstanding work in the previous year. The four shortlisted artists for 2017 will exhibit their work at Ferens Art Gallery in Hull from September 2017 to January 2018, with the overall winner announced in early December.

The artworks included in the Turner Prize 2017 exhibition will cover all kinds of artistic media, including film, painting and installation. Through these pieces of art, the exhibition will show us a diverse range of experiences and voices, illustrating the way that art can reflect the world and challenge our preconceptions.

Working in artistic genres from portraiture to landscape to still life, the four artists will all explore how art responds to political and social upheaval.

WHO ARE THE FOUR SHORTLISTED ARTISTS FOR 2017?
The four shortlisted artists for Turner Prize 2017 are Hurvin Anderson, Andrea Büttner, Lubaina Himid and Rosalind Nashashibi.

Hurvin Anderson’s paintings distil a sense of place. Encompassing both portraiture and landscape, his work shifts between the representation of a place and the reality of it.

Andrea Büttner works across print, installation and painting. Her multifaceted works explore poverty and value, and the ways that we communicate these ideas to each other.

Lubaina Himid’s work uses colourful, decorative motifs, referencing the political power of graphic language. Her artworks confront the sense of invisibility felt by people of the African diaspora.

Rosalind Nashashibi uses time in film to build a steady, often repetitive picture of everyday life, combining moments of movement and stillness.
