Since 1984 the Turner Prize has been instrumental in bringing about a sea-change in the attitude and awareness of the public to contemporary art. No other prize has provoked so much controversy or critical debate. Pickled cows, unmade beds and winking light bulbs have grabbed headlines and dominated the debate in recent years. This updated edition of "The Turner Prize" offers a concise survey of the most influential British artists of the past two decades, including Damien Hirst, Chris Offili, Rachel Whiteread and Jeremy Deller. The winners and shortlisted artists from each year of the Prize, including those nominated in 2005, are represented by a short illustrated essay, featuring a discussion of their career to date, and full colour reproductions of their work. Written by Virginia Button, the curator of the exhibition between 1993 and 1998, and with a foreword by art critic Claire Bishop, "The Turner Prize" is the only book in print to focus on the history and impact of the Prize. This unique guide provides an invaluable reference resource for all those seeking a better understanding of contemporary art.
