Turner Prize exhibition unveiled in Liverpool
- 19 October 2007
The Tate Liverpool expects around 1,000 visitors to pass through its doors each day to inspect this year’s Turner Prize entrants.
The competition is being displayed outside London for the first time, as Liverpool celebrates its status as European Capital of Culture 2008.
The exhibits include a film of shortlisted artist Mark Wallinger wandering around an art gallery dressed as a bear, as well as Nathan Coley’s lightbulb message There Will Be No Miracles Here.
Curator at the Tate Liverpool, Laurence Sillars said: ‘The Turner Prize is always incredibly important in terms of capturing the best of contemporary art in Britain and around the world today.
‘It always raises debate.’
The winner will be announced on December 3, while the exhibition continues until January 13.
