For the first time in 15 years, the famous, prestigious and controversial Turner Prize returns to Liverpool, where an exhibition featuring the work of the four shortlisted artists will run from 20 October 2022 to 19 March 2023. The final result will be announced in December this year.

The work of Heather Phillipson (b.1978) involves, as the Tate states in a press release, “collisions of wildly different materials, media and gestures in what she calls ‘quantum thought experiments’.” Regarding Ingrid Pollard (b.1953), the Tate notes that her multidisciplinary work “questions our relationship with the natural world and interrogates ideas such as Britishness, race and sexuality.” Veronica Ryan (b.1956) was praised for her exploration of “ecology, history and dislocation, as well as the psychological impact of the pandemic.” Regarding Sin Wai Kin (b.1991), the Tate notes that the artist “brings fantasy to life through storytelling in performance, moving image, writing, and print.”

“The jury has travelled the length and breadth of the country, taking advantage of the easing of lockdown to enjoy the explosion of creativity that has emerged from the pandemic,” said Helen Legg, director of Tate Liverpool and co-chair of the Turner Prize jury. “The result is a diverse group of artists, each with a singular vision, who impressed the judges with the intensity of their presentations, while also dealing with important issues facing our society today.”

Alex Farquharson, director of Tate Britain and co-chair of the Turner Prize jury, stressed that art “has provided much-needed enjoyment and escape over the past year, but it has also helped to reconnect us with each other and the world around us, as the practices of the four shortlisted artists variously exemplify.” #2022 #theartwolf #TurnerPrize
