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 Good Song.
  • 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.”
