Hurvin Anderson, Andrea Büttner, Lubaina Himid and Rosalind Nashashibi have just been announced as this year nominees for the annual Turner Prize.


For the first time the list includes artists over the age of 50 following the removal of an age limit.

One of the nominees, Rosalind Nahashibi, has described the list as exciting and that it seems ridiculous for an age limit to have previously existed.

The announcement has been applauded for its diversity, as it includes two black artists whilst three of the nominees are women.


We also took to the streets to get the view of art students around London.

An exhibition of the shortlisted artists’ work will be held at the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull, as part of its UK City of Culture celebrations.

It runs from 26 September 2017 to 7 January, 2018.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony at the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull on 5 December
