This Autumn Glasgow welcomes Europe’s most prestigious visual art award. Tramway will host the Turner Prize, organised by Tate with an exhibition of works by the nominated artists: Assemble, Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers.
The Turner Prize is awarded to a British artist under the age of 50 for an outstanding exhibition in the preceding year. Introducing us to new artists and ideas in contemporary art, previous winners include Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry and Gillian Wearing.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive programme of workshops, talks, tours and activities for people of all ages to get involved and be inspired by the creativity on show.
Given how many artists from Glasgow have made up the Turner Prize shortlists over recent years, it is great to have the Prize on show in Tramway, which feels like a natural home for the Prize this year.
- Dr Penelope Curtis, Director, Tate Britain
The winner of the prize will be announced on 7 December 2015.
Visit Tramway from 1 October 2015 – 17 January 2016 to see the show for free.
