An exhibition showcasing the work of the four finalists shortlisted for the contemporary art prize.

Since it was first founded in 1984 the prize's very raison d'être has been to promote the discussion of new developments in contemporary British art; previous winners have included Tracey Emin, Jeremy Deller, Grayson Perry and Rachel Whiteread.

This year's shortlist is as eclectic as ever, with Anthea Hamilton nominated for a show that included an 18ft sculpture of a man's bare buttocks and Josephine Pryde for one in which visitors rode through the gallery on a miniature locomotive train. Michael Dean and Helen Marten are also finalists.

Chair of the judges and Tate Britain’s director, Alex Farquharson, said that the nominated works were emblematic of 'living in a world saturated in images under the ubiquitous influence of the internet'.
