Five art collectives shortlisted for Turner prizeMay 7, 2021
As few artists have been able to show publicly, judges focus on continuing collaborative work
Five art collectives will this year battle it out for the Turner prize, the first time no individual artist has been shortlisted for what remains one of the world’s best-known awards for visual art.
The choice of collectives reflects the fact that few artists have been able to publicly show anything over the past year. It prompted judges to focus on groups of artists whose collaborative work has demonstrably continued, not always in the confines of a gallery.
