Turner Prize returns to Tate Liverpool

Turner Prize returns to Tate Liverpool

From 20 October Tate Liverpool will be hosting the Turner Prize 2022, one of the world’s best-known prizes for the visual arts, showing the work of the four nominated artists until 19 March 2023.

The Prize is returning to Liverpool for the first time in 15 years having helped launch the city’s year as European Capital of Culture. 

The Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art and is sure to attract global attention, once again putting Liverpool’s cultural scene on a world stage. 

This year the four nominated artists are:

Heather Phillipson, who will show an installation charged with colour, video, kinetic sculpture, and sound. Phillipson proposes her space at Tate Liverpool as alive and happening in a parallel time-zone.

Ingrid Pollard, who will present photographs, sculpture and found objects in a series of installations to question our relationship with the natural world and interrogate ideas such as Britishness, race and sexuality.

Veronica Ryan creates cast forms in clay and bronze; taking recognisable elements and materials – such as fruit, takeaway food containers, feathers, or paper – and reconfigure them, exploring ecology, history and dislocation, as well as the psychological impact of the pandemic.

Sin Wai Kin brings fantasy to life through storytelling in performance, moving image, and ephemera. Drawing on their own experience existing between binary categories, their work realises fictional narratives to describe lived realities of desire, identification, and consciousness.

The winner will be announced on 7 December at an award ceremony at St George’s Hall, Liverpool.
