Public nominations for this year’s Turner Prize are now open, with suggestions being taken until 6pm on Monday 13 April 2015.

Chosen artists need to be under 50 and British, which in the rules of the Turner Prize means all artists working in the UK and British-born artists working abroad. Artists also need to have had an ‘outstanding exhibition or display’ in the 12 months preceding 13 April 2015.

The four shortlisted artists will be announced on Tuesday 12 May 2015. They will be selected by a jury which this year consists of: Alistair Hudson, director, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima); Jan Verwoert, critic and curator; Joanna Mytkowska, director, Museum Sztuki Nowoczesnej; and Kyla McDonald, artistic director, Glasgow Sculpture Studios. The jury is chaired by Dr Penelope Curtis, director of Tate Britain.

The 2015 Turner Prize exhibition will take place in Scotland for the first time in its 31-year history. It will open at Tramway, Glasgow on 1 October and run until 17 January 2016. The winner of this year’s prize will be announced on 7 December 2015.

Curtis said: “Given how many artists from Glasgow have made up the Turner Prize shortlists over recent years, it is great to have the prize on show in Tramway, which feels like a natural home for the prize this year.”

Artists from or based in Glasgow who have won the prize include Douglas Gordon, Martin Boyce, Susan Philipsz, Richard Wright and last year’s winner Duncan Campbell (It For Others pictured above).
