The Turner Prize returns to Tate Britain for its 34th edition. The prize is awarded to a British artist for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the preceding year as determined by a jury.

Tackling pressing issues in society today, the four shortlisted artists for this year are:

Forensic Architecture

An interdisciplinary team that includes architects, filmmakers, lawyers and scientists, Forensic Architecture’s work uses the built environment as a starting point for explorations into human rights violations.

Naeem Mohaiemen

Encompassing films, installations, and essays, his practice investigates transnational left politics in the period after the Second World War, the legacies of decolonisation and the erasing and rewriting of memories of political utopias.

Charlotte Prodger

She works predominantly with moving image, sculpture, writing and performance. Her work explores issues surrounding queer identity, landscape, language technology and time.

Luke Willis Thompson

Working across film, performance, installation and sculpture, his works tackle traumatic histories of class, racial and social inequality, institutional violence, colonialism and forced migration.
