Turner Prize Noms: Very Cheeky!

It sparks excitement and joy in some, bemusement and fury in others and this year’s most coveted prize in British contemporary art – the 2016 Turner prize – is unlikely to buck the trend. This year’s artists include the creator of an 18ft sculpture of a man’s bare buttocks, another whose sculptures are described as “slippery and elusive” and a third who allowed visitors to ride around the gallery on a choo-choo train. Organizers named butt artist Anthea Hamilton, as well as Michael Dean, Helen Marten and Josephine Pryde on this year’s shortlist and all four artists will exhibit their work at a Turner prize show running from September to January with the winner receiving $40,000.
