As Britain gets ready to award its prestigious art prize to one lucky contender, the Tate Britain is preparing its annual exhibition to demonstrate the talents of the shortlisters.
The Turner Prize is a contemporary art award which was set up in 1984 to celebrate new developments in the art world. It is awarded to an up-and coming British artist under the age of fifty every year based on presentation of their work within a 12 month period. Four artists are shortlisted each year and an exhibition is dedicated to their work at Tate Britain.
