Artist at MK Gallery gets shortlisted for biggest British art prize
Guyanese-born artist Ingrid Pollard has been nominated for the biggest, most prestigious art prize in Britain – the 2022 Turner Prize – for her solo exhibition currently showing at MK Gallery, Ingrid Pollard: Carbon Slowly Turning.
The prize, considered to be the highest honour in the art world, is awarded to a British artist for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the preceding year as determined by a jury.
The exhibition at MK Gallery (until 29 May 2022) is a major survey of Ingrid’s work – the first exhibition to fully explore her pioneering and experimental practice, from the 1980s to the present day, and it examines her substantial contribution to British art. It is curated by Gilane Tawadros in collaboration with the artist.
Gilane said: ‘Ingrid Pollard’s nomination for the Turner Prize recognises her outstanding contribution as an artist to contemporary art and ideas. Her practice resonates deeply with the currents of our present moment in haunting and poetic ways.’
Ingrid is nominated alongside three other artists: Heather Pillipson, Veronica Ryan, and Sin Wai Kin. The 2022 Turner Prize exhibition will take place at Tate Liverpool from 20 October 2022.
