A Turner Prize Finalist Rundown

Man, do we ever love it when Art Info puts together their round-ups of upcoming awards. This time around, they’ve collected the four finalists for the Tate‘s Turner Prize, which is perhaps the biggest, most important award an artist can receive (or so the good people at Turner would very much like you to continue to believe). The finalists this year are Mark Leckey, Runa Islam, Goshka Macuga and Cathy Wilkes, and Art Info has a great photo gallery to accompany their wonderful synopsis paragraphs for each of the artists. Read up on them now, as you’re sure to hear their names again and again throughout the year, given that we’re still a long way off from when a winner is announced: December 1st (those Turners and Tates love to stretch things out as long as is humanly possible).
