One of the world’s best-known prizes for the visual arts, the Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art.

Established in 1984, the Turner Prize is awarded to a British artist for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the past year.

The four artists who have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2018 are: Forensic Architecture, for developing highly innovative methods for sourcing evidence relating to human rights abuses, used in courts of law as well as exhibitions of art and architecture; Naeem Mohaiemen, whose work explores post-colonial identity, migration, exile and refuge using fiction and social history; Charlotte Prodger, who uses a range of technologies, from old camcorders to iPhones, to explore relationships between queer bodies, landscape, language, technology and time; ​and Luke Willis Thompson, whose work investigates the treatment of minority communities and the way objects, places and people can be imbued with violence. The winner is announced in December.
