our friends over at tramway are hosting an exhibition showcasing all nominees for arguably the most prestigious contemporary art award – the turner prize 2015. as southsiders, we are so unbelievably lucky to have this fantastic creative space right on our doorstep (a ten minute, half a mile walk to be precise!). this is the very first time the turner prize has been held in scotland – a very exciting time for our ever expanding art community.
the 2015 turner prize is being held from 1 october to 17 january 2016, with the winner being announced on 7 december 2015.
the nominees for this year are:
“given how many artists from glasgow have made up the turner prize shortlists over recent years, it is great to have the prize on show in tramway, which feels like a natural home for the prize this year.” > dr penelope curtis, director, tate britain
in addition to the turner prize exhibition, tramway are also offering many other exciting activities for visitors. so, if you’re looking for creative inspiration check out their workshops, talks and tours!
“over the last 20 years, glasgow and scotland has gained national and international recognition as a centre of excellence in, and for, the visual arts and for many years artists who are from scotland or who have trained at the glasgow school of art – one of the world’s leading art schools – have been nominated for, or won, the award.” > nicholas serota, director, tate
come and share your thoughts and turner prize experiences with us – we’d love to hear. what a great exhibition to have in the heart of our community!
