What’s on in Glasgow ? Turner Prize
What’s on in Glasgow ? Turner Prize | Tramway | October 1, 2015 – January 16, 2016
Visiting Glasgow? Why not visit the exhibition of the Turner Prize nominations at the Tramway. The Turner Prize is the biggest award in British art, with £25,000 going to the winner and £5,000 to the nominees, and the most controversial. Its championship of conceptual rigour over traditionalism has tended to whip the tabloids into a froth, but a list of Turner nominees contains many of the most memorable names from the last thirty years of British art: Howard Hodgkin, Gilbert & George, Tony Cragg, Rachel Whiteread, Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Douglas Gordon, Gillian Wearing, Martin Creed, Susan Philipsz, Steve McQueen, Grayson Perry and Jeremy Deller – and those are just some of the winners.
The award ceremony is being held in Scotland for the first time.
The exhibition is 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 at the Tramway. Tramway is an international art-space which commissions, produces and presents contemporary arts projects. Tramway – 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow, G41 2PE
