Turner Prize nominees
From the CBC:
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, the first black woman nominated for the award, who creates traditional portraits of people who do not exist, telling detailed back stories for each fictional subject.
French installation artist Laure Prouvost, who creates videos with quick cuts and deliberate misuse of language.
Glasgow-based David Shrigley, known for his blackly humorous stick-men cartoons with captions. He also directed the video for Blur's
British-German performance artist Tino Sehgal, whose Tate Modern installation involved live encounters between a team of volunteers and gallery visitors designed to “break down barriers.”
