One of the best-known prizes for the visual arts in the world, the Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art. Established in 1984, the Prize is awarded annually to an artist born, living or working in Britain, for an outstanding exhibition or public presentation of their work anywhere in the world in the previous year.
Each year an expert jury is formed to select a shortlist of artists for the Turner Prize. An exhibition of work by the nominated artists provides a vital public platform for emerging British artists and for visitors to engage with the latest developments in British art. The Turner Prize winner will be awarded £25,000 with £10,000 awarded to the other shortlisted artists at an award ceremony in December 2023.
Joe Hill, Director, Towner Eastbourne, said, “We are pleased that Martin, Cédric, Melanie and Helen will select our shortlist for the 2023 Turner Prize. Their range of experience, locally, nationally and globally will be sure to draw together a fantastic list of artists, who we will be privileged to exhibit in our galleries in 2023. We are delighted that the Turner Prize will be hosted at Towner as an important part of our centenary celebrations, and that this very capable and knowledgeable judging panel will be part of it. Hosting the Turner Prize will be an exciting moment not only for us but for Eastbourne."
