Durham Press would like to congratulate Hurvin Anderson who has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2017 Turner Prize. Each year four British artists are chosen for a memorable presentation of work in the preceding year. Anderson has been regarded as one of Britain’s leading contemporary painters and was chosen for his exhibitions in Nottingham, U.K. and Ontario, Canada. Turner judges described him as “an outstanding British painter whose art speaks to our current political moment with questions about identity and belonging.”

An exhibition of work by the shortlisted artists will open at Ferens Art Gallery in Hull, England on September 26th and the winner will be announced at the award ceremony on December 5th, 2017.
