Turner Prize 2015

  • Tramway |
  • 1 Oct 2015 – 17 Jan 2016

An exhibition showcasing the four finalists of the contemporary art prize, which is staged in Scotland for the first time.

In alternating years the prize – which awards a British artist under 50 for an outstanding exhibition of their work – is presented at a venue outside of London; this year Glasgow-based art space, Tramway, is taking the turn to host.

Works by each of the four finalists are on display for the public's perusal, including that of winning design collective Assemble, and the three other nominees Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers. Their practice spans audio, photography, design, sculpture and installation.

While in recent years the Turner Prize shortlist has attracted criticism, the 2015 finalists have been met with fresh enthusiasm. The BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz described the exhibition as 'the least egotistical I've seen', while Adrian Searle wrote in The Guardian 'my curiosity about the Turner prize is piqued, in a way it hasn’t been for some years'.
