The Turner Prize 2012 has been awarded to Elizabeth Price, for her trilogy of video installationa at BALTIC. The £25,000 prize was presented by Jude Law on 3 December. The other three finalists each received £5,000.
'None of [the shortlisted works] are something you can "get" in a few minutes: you have to spend an hour or two with these pieces in order to really understand them,' says Tate Britain Director Penelope Curtis. Take the time to make your own mind up at the shortlist exhibition, which returns to London following its showing at Gateshead last year.
The prize is awarded for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation in the year preceding 24 April, and up for consideration this year are Spartacus Chetwynd's 'carnivalesque' installation at Sadie Coles HQ; Luke Fowler's immersive film exploring the life and work of Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing; Paul Noble's painstakingly crafted drawings of the fictional cityscape Nobson Newtown; and Elizabeth Price's trilogy of video installations at BALTIC.
