After last year’s groundbreaking event, Turner Prize is back for its 34th edition. Held to honor a British artist for their outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work, Turner Prize bestowed the award to Lubaina Himid last year, making her the first black woman to win.
This year’s award has proven to be even more progressive for a few reasons. First, all of the four shortlisted artists work with moving image; in layman’s terms, they create films. Moreover, the themes of these works are similarly politically-charged, ranging from human rights violations, colonialism, queer identity, migration, inequality and more.
Per tradition, an exhibition showcasing the nominees’ works is currently ongoing at Tate Britain, London. The exhibition will run until January 6, 2019.
