The Turner 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.

Every other year the Turner Prize is staged outside of London, with this year being presented in Coventry as part of the UK City of Culture 2021.

The Prize’s four shortlisted artists will exhibit alongside a local, national, and international artists as part of Coventry Biennial 2021.

The shortlisted artists are:

  • Array Collective
  • Black Obsidian Sound System
  • Cooking Sections
  • Gentle/Radical
  • Project Art Works

This is the first time a Turner Prize jury has selected a shortlist consisting entirely of artist collectives. All the nominees work closely and continuously with communities across the breadth of the UK to inspire social change through art. The collaborative practices selected for this year’s shortlist also reflect the solidarity and community demonstrated in response to the pandemic.

The announcement of the winner is on 1 December 2021.
