David Shrigley, September 2012Published September, 2012 Vault // Thursday, 25 Apr 2013
Great news for one of our favorite artists. David Shrigley, who we were super lucky to interview for our September 2012 issue this year while he was in San Francisco for his exhibition at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, was nominated for Britain's top art award for an artist under 50, the Turner Prize. The artist was nominated for his standout (we saw it, we agree) exhibition at Hayward Gallery in London. That show traveled to us in SF. Take some time to read our piece with Mr Shrigley from Sept 2012. The other nominees include Laure Prouvost, Tino Sehgal, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. According to HUH, " The Turner Prize exhibition will be shown in Ebrington in Derry-Londonderry from 23 October to 5 January, 2014. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on 2 December, 2013."
