Do you want to host the Turner Prize?


Tate is looking for a venue for the 2019 Turner prize—could it be you? The prestigious, headline-hitting award is presented alternate years at Tate Britain and at a selected UK venue (the Baltic in Gateshead bagged the honour in 2011 while the Tramway in Glasgow hosted the prize in 2015; this year, the Ferens Art Gallery in Hull, the UK City of Culture, will take a turn; 26 September-7 January 2018). The Tate is now inviting expressions of interest in hosting the Turner Prize 2019 exhibition and award ceremony. A Tate statement says: “Presenting the Turner Prize in venues across the UK creates opportunities for more people to be directly involved in discussions about contemporary British art. The invited partner organisation for 2019 will have a national and international profile and reputation as a venue for ambitious contemporary art programming, with significant audience reach and the capacity to manage a high profile event and media partnerships.” For further information, contact:
