Exhibition featuring Scottish Turner Prize winners and nominees goes on the road across Scotland
Mike Inglis, The Art Camps, 2015.

LONDON.- As part of the celebrations of the Turner Prize 2015 in Scotland, The Travelling Gallery will take a special show out on the road across Scotland featuring a roll-call of past Scottish Turner Prize winners and nominees, starting on 22 August 2015, then travelling right across Scotland as far as the Highlands and the Orkney Islands, visiting schools, galleries and community centres, and returning to Glasgow to coincide with the announcement of this year’s Turner Prize winner on 7 December 2015.

The exhibition, entitled Eyes on the Prize, features the work of:

· Christine Borland with Brody Condon (Turner Prize nominee 1997)
· Martin Boyce (Turner Prize winner 2011)
· Ian Hamilton Finlay (Turner Prize Nominee 1985)
· Douglas Gordon (Turner Prize winner 1996)
· Callum Innes (Turner Prize nominee 1995)
· Jim Lambie (Turner Prize nominee 2005)
· Ciara Phillips (Turner Prize nominee 2014)
· David Shrigley (Turner Prize nominee 2013)
· Lucy Skaer (Turner Prize nominee 2009)

Custom built as a mobile, contemporary art space, the Travelling Gallery is fully accessible and is based on a Scania Omni Decca 12 metre chassis. It is fully air conditioned, naturally lit through integrated roof panels, with additional lighting from a suspended lighting track, and the latest audio visual equipment. All it needs is two 13amp sockets to run in any location it visits. The exhibition programme features work by both established and emerging Scottish and international artists.

The Travelling Gallery tour is conceived to put the spotlight on the quality and range of Scotland’s contribution to contemporary art, and bring it to everyone in every part of the community. It coincides with the Turner Prize 2015 presentation at Tramway in Glasgow, with an exhibition of the four shortlisted artists, Assemble, Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel and Nicole Wermers, opening on 1 October 2015, and the announcement of the winner on 7 December 2015.

Sarah Munro, Director of Tramway said: “With the Turner Prize coming to Scotland for the first time, we have a fantastic opportunity to share the diversity, the inspiration and the excitement of contemporary visual art to people throughout Glasgow and across the country. Our team at Tramway are working hard ahead of the exhibition opening in October and in the meantime, the Travelling Gallery tour is the perfect vehicle to open access and let everyone get involved.”

Amanda Catto, Head of Visual Arts at Creative Scotland, said: “The Travelling Gallery is a unique resource that takes some of the very best art to some of the harder to reach places in Scotland. Eyes on the Prize has been inspired by Glasgow's hosting of the Turner Prize, and brings together an excellent selection of work from artists based in Scotland who have been associated with the Prize. This touring exhibition is a great way to bring important works of art to new audiences and we hope the experience will encourage people to visit the Turner Prize exhibition when it is on at Tramway later in the year.”

Alison Chisholm, Travelling Gallery Curator said: We are very excited to be taking our bus load of Turner Prize artists’ work around the country. Most of the artists in the exhibition have exhibited their work previously in the Travelling Gallery before their nominations, so it has been a real pleasure to work with them again. The exhibition incorporates a wide variety of work – including printmaking, sculpture, animation, video, painting and site specific installations. So there should be something for everyone to enjoy.”
