Turner Prize 2015 1 Oct 2015 - 17 Jan 2016

Show Me Something New

Shortlist

The Turner Prize 2015 exhibition at Tramway is now closed.

 
The Turner Prize 2015 exhibition at Tramway ran from 1 September 2015 - 17 January 2016. 

The Turner Prize, organised by Tate, is awarded to a British artist under the age of 50 for an outstanding exhibition in the preceding year. The Turner Prize introduces us to new artists and new ideas in contemporary art and previous winners include Damien Hirst, Grayson Perry and Gillian Wearing. 

2015’s shortlisted artists were AssembleBonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers. The prize was awarded to Assemble, who work in tandem with communities to realise a ground up approach to regeneration, city planning and development in opposition to corporate gentrification.
 
They draw on long traditions of artistic and collective initiatives that experiment in art, design and architecture. In doing so they offer alternative models to how societies can work. The long term collaboration between Granby Four Streets and Assemble shows the importance of artistic practice being able to drive and shape urgent issues in the post-industrial era.​

Announced at Tramway, Glasgow, in partnership with Tate, the £25,000 prize was presented by artist, musician and songwriter, Kim Gordon during a live broadcast on Channel 4. 
 ​
The jury applauded the strength of all the nominated artists' work.
