Winner announced: Turner Prize 2018 exhibition, Tate Britain
Awarded annually to an artist born, living or working in Britain, for an outstanding artistic contribution over the last twelve months, the Turner Prize reflects the best of British Art today.
Overtly political in their practice and deemed by the jury to 'reflect our times', this year's four shortlisted artists are:
British collective Forensic Architecture, Ph.D. student Naeem Mohaiemen, Glasgow-based flimographer Charlotte Prodger and multi-media artist Luke Willis Thompson.
At an awards ceremony on 4 December, Charlotte Prodger was announced the winner of the Turner Prize 2018. The jury admired the painterly quality of BRIDGIT and the attention it pays to art history.
The work of the winner and three shortlisted artists is on show in a dedicated Turner Prize exhibition at Tate Britain from 25 September 2018 – 6 January 2019.
What you need to know: The jury praised Prodger for her nuanced treatment of identity politics, 'queerness, femaleness, personhood, and what it means to be a human today'. The Glasgow-based artist often uses camcorders and iPhones to explore technology as a prosthetic extension of the body, intimately connected to time, work and our social calendars.
The two single-channel films for which she has been nominated position the body in space, and showcase the various ways in which we, as humans, constantly seek to exceed our physical capabilities with external, material devices.
What she has been nominated for: Her video reportage BRIDGIT, shot entirely with her iPhone, and Stoneymollan Trail, a video elegy to 'time, loss and casual sex' at Bergen Kunsthall.
