LONDON.- The Turner Prize 2012 exhibition features work by the four shortlisted artists: Spartacus Chetwynd, Luke Fowler, Paul Noble and Elizabeth Price. The winner of the prize will be announced during a live broadcast of the award ceremony on Channel 4, as part of a special half-hour programme, on the evening of Monday 3 December 2012 by actor Jude Law.This year’s prize fund, supported by Channel 4, is £40,000 with £25,000 going to the winner and £5,000 each for the other shortlisted artists.

Spartacus Chetwynd restages key moments from her nominated exhibition Odd Man Out 2011 which addressed ideas of democracy and the consequences of decision making. In live performances that run from 12:00-17:00 daily visitors will be invited to present themselves to ‘the oracle’ for a pronouncement on their future actions and to watch a puppet show of the tale of Jesus and Barrabas. Footage from past performances are also included. Drawing from art history, literature, film and television, Chetwynd’s carnivalesque live events dissolve the boundary between spectator and participant.

Luke Fowler exhibits his nominated film All Divided Selves 2011, an exploration of the ideas and legacy of Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing (1927-89). The film presents a rich collage of captivating archival material, in which the viewer becomes an inadvertent witness to psychiatric sessions. Fowler also displays a series of diptych format photographs, Two Frame Film 2006, reminiscent of film montage.

Paul Noble exhibits a body of work from his elaborate drawing project depicting the fictional place, Nobson Newtown. Spanning sixteen years of work, a range of the painstaking pencil drawings are brought together from the very first in the series, Paul’s Palace 1996, to a recent large-scale drawing not seen before. Starting with a word drawn at the centre, the letters are then ‘illuminated’ with a complex web of visual narratives and delivered with a hint of deadpan humour. New sculptures made in speckled black and white marble echo the monochromatic forms within the drawings.

Elizabeth Price presents her video installation THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979 2012. Comprising three parts, the video brings together distinct bodies of material into a dissonant assembly; photographs of church architecture, internet clips of pop performances and news footage of a notorious fire in a Woolworths furniture department in 1979. Price weaves together existing archives of text, image and sound to create video installations that drift between social history and fantasy.

The winner will be decided by a jury comprising: Andrew Hunt, Director, Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea; Heike Munder, Director, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich; Mark Sladen, Director, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen and Penelope Curtis, Director, Tate Britain and Chair of the Jury. Sadly, jury member Michael Stanley, Director, Modern Art Oxford, died on 21 September 2012.

The Turner Prize, established in 1984, is awarded to a British artist under fifty for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the twelve months preceding 24 April 2012. It is intended to promote public discussion of new developments in contemporary British art and is widely recognised as one of the most prestigious awards for the visual arts in the world.
