With Tate and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum
One of the best-known prizes for visual arts in the world, Turner Prize 2021 is coming to the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry as part of UK City of Culture 2021. The Turner Prize is awarded annually to an artist born, living or working in Britain, for an outstanding exhibition or public presentation of their work anywhere in the world in the previous year.
Every other year, the Prize leaves Tate Britain and is presented at a venue outside London.
This is the first time a Turner Prize jury has selected a shortlist consisting entirely of artist collectives. All the nominees work closely and continuously with communities across the breadth of the UK to inspire social change through art. The collaborative practices selected for this year’s shortlist also reflect the solidarity and community demonstrated in response to the pandemic.
The announcement of the winner is on 1 December 2021.
The 2021 Prize’s jury is: Russell Tovey, Actor; Zoé Whitley, Director, Chisenhale Gallery; Aaron Cezar, Director, Delfina Foundation; and Kim McAleese, Programme Director, Grand Union.
The Turner Prize 2021 is supported by the AKO Foundation, Avanti West Coast and Arts Council England, with additional support from ArtAV, the John Browne Charitable Trust and Lance Uggla.
