The legs of people are seen as they look towards part of an artwork by Helen Marten, one of the four artists shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2016, as it is displayed at the Tate Britain gallery in London, Monday, Sept. 26, 2016. The Turner Prize aims to promote public debate around new developments in contemporary British art.
Finalists announced Wednesday are British painter Hurvin Anderson, whose images often draw on his Caribbean heritage; Lubaina Himid, one of the U.K.'s leading black female artists; German-born multidisciplinary artist Andrea Buttner; and Palestinian-English artist Rosalind Nashashibi, whose work includes the film "Electric Gaza."
Painter and sculptor Helen Marten has won the 2016 Turner Prize. The 31-year-old, the youngest of the four shortlisted artists, was announced as the winner at a ceremony at Tate Britain in London. The prestigious £25,000 prize is awarded to a British artist, under the age of 50, considered to have put on the best exhibition of the past year. In her speech she condemned alt-right groups and called for more creativity in the education system.
