People of note often turn up to present the Turner Prize—think Madonna, Jude Law and Yoko Ono. This year, DJ and musician Goldie will hand out the gong in Hull where the Turner Prize exhibition, organised by Tate, is on display at the Ferens Art Gallery (until 7 January 2018). Goldie (aka Clifford Price), known for his resplendent gold teeth, started out as a graffiti artist, daubing his street art around Wolverhampton and Birmingham. The shortlisted artists—Hurvin Anderson, Andrea Büttner, Lubaina Himid and Rosalind Nashashibi—will find out who has walked away with the headline-hitting accolade on 5 December. The Turner Prize award is £40,000 with £25,000 going to the winner and £5,000 each for the other shortlisted artists.
