We are delighted to hear that artist Ciara Phillips has been nominated for this year’s Turner Prize. The show for which she was nominated was inspired by artist Corita Kent, who died in 1986. Workshop (2010-Ongoing) explores the collaborative process behind printing by inviting artists, designers and local women’s groups to participate, share ideas, knowledge and experience.
Ciara Phillips is a Glasgow based artist and produces site-specific installations with screenprints, textiles and wall paintings, and often works collaboratively with other artists and designers. Phillips has been involved in collaborative and solo shows, including ‘And More’, which was a site specific exhibition held at Inverleith House.
The Turner Prize is in its 30th year, and awards an artist who has shown an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the past 12 months. The prize is for £40,000, with £25,000 going to the winner, and £5000 going to each of the other nominees. This year, the artists nominated work in film, collaboration, performance or installation. The prize will take place at Tate Britain from 30 September 2014 to 4 January 2015. The winner will be announced on Monday 1 December 2014 at an awards ceremony, broadcast live on Channel 4.
