The Turner Prize 2014Set up in 1984, the Tate's Turner Prize has been courting controversy ever since. The most notorious prize in the world of contemporary art, it carries a large cash prize - there's £40,000 in the pot - and instant fame for the winner who must be a British artist under fifty and have staged an 'outstanding' exhibition of work completed within the year. The shortlist - which this year consists of Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips, James Richards and Tris Vonna-Michell - always seems to feature conceptual art of the most difficult-to-understand sort. But despite the uproar from stuffier elements in the tabloids, this show is always great fun. No matter what your view, the return of the Turner Prize to London in 2014 - following its temporary move to Derry-Londonderry last year - makes this a must for lovers of contemporary art. The exhibition opens at Tate Britain on 30th September 2014 and runs to 4th January 2015. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony, broadcast live on Channel 4 on Monday 1st December 2014.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
