Duncan Campbell Wins Turner Prize

Dublin-born film artist Duncan Campbell (right) has won this year’s £25,000 Turner Prize for a video that reflects on African art and includes a dance sequence inspired by Karl Marx. The jury described the winning film It for Others as “an ambitious and complex film which rewards repeated viewing.” Campbell’s win was announced by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (left) at Tate Britain live on Channel 4. Glasgow-based Campbell, who was the bookmakers’ favorite, was on the shortlist for the prestigious and provocative contemporary art prize along with James Richards, Ciara Phillips and Tris Vonna-Michell.
