Turner Prize 2016 - Exhibition at Tate Britain | Tate

(Tuesday) (Monday)

Discover the four artists shortlisted for this year’s award









The four shortlisted artists for the Turner Prize 2016 are:

Michael Dean 

Anthea Hamilton 

Helen Marten

Josephine Pryde











Michael Dean

Working primarily in sculpture, Dean creates work that is concerned with the physical presentation of language. His sculptures and installations reference the everyday urban environment and familiar but aesthetically overlooked materials – from a rebar on a building site to the corrugated metal of a shop shutter. He is nominated for his exhibitions Sic Glyphs at South London Gallery and Qualities of Violence at de Appel arts centre, Amsterdam.

Anthea Hamilton

Hamilton works across sculpture, installation, performance and video, bringing a surrealist sensibility to popular culture and the mind-bending volume of stylised and sexualised imagery in the digital world. While rooted in the history of sculpture her work seduces the viewer with comic and unexpected combinations of images, materials and words, as well as dramatic shifts in scale. She is nominated for her solo exhibition Anthea Hamilton: Lichen! Libido! Chastity! at SculptureCenter, New York.

Helen Marten

Marten brings together a wide range of found objects and immaculately crafted elements in her sculptures. While suggestive of contemporary visual culture, as well as various kinds of art since the 60s, the work defies both form and meaning: it attracts and intrigues while also resisting interpretation and categorisation. She is nominated for projects including Lunar Nibs at the 56th Venice Biennale and the solo exhibition Eucalyptus Let Us In at Green Naftali, New York.

Josephine Pryde

Through photography and installation Pryde explores the very nature of image making and display. She is fascinated by the relationship between art and photography, of art as commodity and of the seductive qualities of the wider art world. Her work often calls into question the conventions of the gallery and the complex networks of the art world. She is nominated for her solo exhibition Lapses in Thinking by the Person I am at CCA Wattis, San Francisco.
