Turner Prize 2011

The Turner Prize is a contemporary art prize which celebrates new developments in contemporary art.

It is awarded each year to a British artist under fifty. The judges change every year. In 2011 the Turner Prize was hosted by BALTIC in Gateshead, the first time the Prize has been outside of London in its history. We asked young people to find out more about the prize and the four nominees.
