It is great news for the city which Car Hire Glasgow Airport serves and they do hope the prize goes to the right person.
The visual art scene in Glasgow has had another boost after three of the four nominations for the Turner Prize this year all graduated from the Glasgow School of Art (GSA). Duncan Campbell, Ciara Phillips who is the favourite, and Tris Vonna-Michell will be competing with German-based James Richards for the most coveted art honour in advance of the December award ceremony.
GSA director Professor Tom Inns said “We’re delighted that three of our graduates have made the short list for the 30th annual Turner Prize.”
The competitions landmark 30th year has had four GSA winners in the past and the nominations for this year’s prize are an extra coup for Glasgow, which is hosting the Turner Prize next year. The winner will take home a prize of £25,000.
Tate Britain director Penelope Curtis, chair of the judging panel, said “The four short listed artists share a strong international presence and an ability to adapt, restage and reinterpret their own and others’ works.”
