Tate Liverpool announces shortlist for Turner Prize 2022

12TH April, 2022

Tate Liverpool has announced the shortlist for this year’s Turner Prize, one of the world’s best-known accolades for the visual arts that aims to promote debate around new developments in contemporary British art. 

Those shortlisted are: Heather Phillipson for her solo exhibition RUPTURE NO 1: Blowtorching the bitten peach; Ingrid Pollard for her solo exhibition Carbon Slowly Turning; Veronica Ryan for her solo exhibition Along a Spectrum and her Hackney Windrush Art Commission; and Sin Wai Kin for their involvement in the British Art Show 9 and their solo presentation at Blindspot Gallery.

The shortlisted artists will each have an exhibition of their work held at Tate Liverpool from 20 October 2022 until 19 March 2023, with the winner being announced at an award ceremony in Liverpool in December.

2022 marks Turner Prize’s return to Liverpool for the first time in 15 years, with Tate Liverpool being the first gallery outside of London to host the prize in 2007 when it helped launch the city’s year as European capital.
