Array Collective members
Established in 1984, the Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art

The Turner Prize 2021 has been awarded to Array Collective. The £25,000 prize was presented, last year, by Pauline Black, the lead singer of 2 Tone pioneers, The Selecter, during a live broadcast on the BBC. A further £10,000 was awarded to each of the other nominees. A Turner Prize exhibition is being held at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry as a highlight of its City of Culture in 2021.

The jury awarded the prize to Array Collective for their hopeful and dynamic artwork which addresses urgent social and political issues affecting Northern Ireland with humour, seriousness and beauty. The jury were impressed with how Belfast-based Array Collective were able to translate their activism and values into the gallery environment, creating a welcoming, immersive and surprising exhibition. The jury commended all five nominees for their socially engaged artworks, and how they work closely and creatively with communities across the breadth of the UK. The collaborative practices highlighted in 2021’s shortlist also reflect the solidarity and generosity demonstrated in response to our divided times.

One of the world’s best-known prizes for the visual arts, the Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art. For the first time, this year’s Turner Prize jury selected a shortlist consisting entirely of artist collectives and artist-run projects: Array Collective, Black Obsidian Sound System, Cooking Sections, Gentle/Radical and Project Art Works.

The members of the Turner Prize 2021 jury were Aaron Cezar, Director, Delfina Foundation; Kim McAleese, Programme Director, Grand Union; Russell Tovey, Actor; and Zoé Whitley, Director, Chisenhale Gallery. The jury was chaired by Alex Farquharson, Director, Tate Britain.

The current exhibition is a highlight of Coventry’s UK City of Culture 2021 celebrations. Herbert Art Gallery and Museum champions Coventry’s culture, city and arts and is one of the UK’s leading regional museums. As part of its preparations for City of Culture 2021, the museum underwent a major redevelopment of its gallery spaces in anticipation of the Turner Prize exhibition. In parallel to the Turner Prize exhibition, Coventry also hosts ‘Coventry Biennial 2021: Hyper-Possible’ across Coventry and Warwickshire.

The exhibition of the five shortlisted collectives at The Herbert Art Gallery & Music continues until 12 January 2022. Entry is free.

Deadline for Biennale College Teatro applications is 17 January

Performers at a Biennale presentation

The Biennale College Teatro is still accepting online applications for 2022.

Aimed at performers (both from Italy and abroad) aged 18-40 for the production of two original creations to be performed outdoors and complying with the concept of the Festival in 2022: Red, the call will be open until 17 January 2022.
Two further opportunities, aimed at Italian directors aged 18-35 and Italian authors aged 18-40, are also accepting applications.

The international call for applications dedicated to the performance was launched in 2020 and now gets to the second edition. After the selection phase, two artists will be selected and are expected to develop their original outdoor performance in Venice and its environment, in compliance with the concept chosen for the next Biennale Teatro: Red. The development and production phase will have Italian directors Stefano Ricci and Gianni Forte as tutors, and will come to an end with the presentation of the two performances at the Biennale Teatro 2022.

 

“Out of the necessity to build a performative gesture in everyday social environments, the theatrical act will settle in vital spaces reaffirming the sense of collectivity that art must bring to people. We acknowledge the great interest that performative artists raise throughout the world today, so deeply connected as they are with Visual Arts, Music and Dance. La Biennale di Venezia thus considers it important and necessary to invite international artists to deal with a type of scenic writing – such as the site-specific performance – that is particularly suitable for the narrative of contemporary issues” – says Stefano Ricci.
