Tate Britain to show Turner Prize works in London
LONDON — The Tate Britain museum is to exhibit works being considered for this year’s Turner Prize.
Four artists are competing for Britain’s best known contemporary art prize, which in the past has often been controversial.
The exhibit will open Tuesday, with the winner to be announced at the museum in early December.
The four artists on the shortlist include painter Dexter Dalwood, painter and sculptor Angela de la Cruz, sound artist Susan Philipsz, and the artist-led collective The Otolith Group.
The competition is open to artists under 50 who were born, living or working in Britain. It carries a 25,000 pound ($39,600) prize.
