Extra task 1: Design

The Turner Prize: a prize awarded every year by London’s Tate Gallery to a British visual artist under the age of 50. In recent years the prize has aroused a good deal of controversy because of its focus on conceptual art.

Conceptual Art: art in which the concept or idea is the most important aspect of the work. In other words, the planning and decisions made beforehand are more important that the actual execution ('utførelse').

 

Task

  1. Go to the link for this year's Turner Prize. Write a short presentation where you sum up the information you find about the artists that have been nominated ('shortlisted') for the prize this year.
  2. How would you describe their work?
