Turner Prize Show Will Travel Around Scotland in a Bus


Scottish countryside.


Leading up to the announcement of this year’s Turner Prize winner on December 7, a travelling art exhibition featuring work by past nominees and winners will tour Scotland this fall, the New York Times reports. The show will be on view in a bus known as the Travelling Gallery, and will begin its journey in Edinburgh this Sunday, making its way through Glasgow, the Scottish Highlands, and the northern islands before returning to Glasgow on November 30 in time for the Turner Prize Awards.

The show will include work by Christine Borland, Martin Boyce, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Douglas Gordon, Callum Innes, Jim Lambie, Ciara Phillips, David Shrigley, and Lucy Skaer.

This marks the first year that the Turner Prize exhibition of nominees’ work will take place in Scotland. In 2011 the Turner committee decided to hold the ceremony outside of London every other year. In another Turner first, the finalist pool includes an artist group, the London-based architecture collective, Assemble, who were picked along with Nicole Wermers, Janice Kerbel, and Bonnie Camplin. (None of the finalists this year are Scottish.) All four will be featured in a show running from October 1 through January 17 at Tramway in Glasgow.
