Turner Prize 2019 nominees announced
1st May 2019
The shortlisted artists for Turner Prize 2019 are: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo and Tai Shani.
Every other year, the prize leaves Tate Britain and is presented at a venue outside London – and this year it will be at Turner Contemporary. It is the first time that the venue, outside of London, has a direct connection with JMW Turner. Turner Contemporary stands on the site of the artist’s lodging house and enjoys views of the skies that Turner felt were ‘the loveliest in all of Europe’.
Turner Prize 2019 will be a major exhibition at Turner Contemporary in Margate. It will be open to the public from Saturday 28 September – Sunday 12 January 2020. The winning artist will be announced on 3 December, at an award ceremony live on the BBC, broadcast partner to the Turner Prize.
