Turner Prize 2013 - shortlist

David Shrigley, Untitled, 2012

The artists shortlisted for this year's Turner Prize are: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, David Shrigley, Tino Seghal and Laure Prouvost
Read Adrian Searle's assessment of the shortlist.
Work by the shortlisted artists will be shown at Ebrington in Derry, Londonderry as part of the UK City of Culture 2013, opening on 23 October 2013. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony on Monday 2 December 2013. (Profiles below are from the Tate Gallery website.)

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is nominated for her exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery, Extracts and Verses.
Yiadom-Boakye’s painted portraits of imaginary people use invented pre-histories and raise pertinent questions about how we read pictures in general, particularly with regard to black subjects.

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Midnight, Cadiz, 2013
David Shrigley is nominated for his solo exhibition at Hayward Gallery David Shrigley: Brain Activity.
The exhibition of Shrigley’s well-loved drawings with his photography, sculpture and film offered a comprehensive overview and new perspectives on his work, revealing his black humour, macabre intelligence and infinite jest.

David Shrigley, Headless Drummer, 2012
Tino Seghal is nominated for his project at documenta (XIII) This Variation, and at Tate Modern These Associations.
Seghal’s intimate works are at once structured and improvised, consisting purely of live encounters between people with a keen sensitivity to their institutional context. Through participation they test the limits of artistic material and audience perception.

Laure Prouvost is nominated for her Tate and Grizedale Arts commission Wantee, and her two-part installation for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women Farfromwords.
Prouvost’s unique approach to filmmaking, often situated within atmospheric installations, employs strong story telling, quick cuts, montage and deliberate misuse of language to create surprising and unpredictable work.
