  • Coronavirus Bursaries up for grabs after Turner Prize cancelled

This year's show was scheduled to return to Tate Britain, which hosts the award exhibition every other year. It is eligible to artists born or based in the United Kingdom for outstanding exhibitions or other presentations of their work in the previous 12 months.

The panel will hold a virtual meeting to select the artists, announcing them in late June.

"The practicalities of organising a Turner Prize exhibition are impossible in the current circumstances, so we have made a decision to help support even more artists during this exceptionally hard time", said Tate Britain director and Turner Prize jury chair Alex Farquharson.

Instead, Tate will give bursaries each worth £10,000 to help 10 artists at this "exceptionally hard time". Instead of announcing the artists shortlisted for the prestigious contemporary art award, organizers revealed today that they have opted to call off the prize's fall exhibition, which would have run from September 30 to January 3, 2021 and featured new work by the artists, and will instead divide its $123,000 program fund into $12,000 bursaries that will be given to ten artists affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. "I appreciate visitors will be disappointed that there is no Turner Prize this year", Farquharson said.

Those judges - Richard Birkett, curator at large at the Institute of Contemporary Arts; Sarah Munro, director of the BALTIC centre for contemporary art in Gateshead; Fatos Üstek, director of Liverpool Biennial; and Duro Olowu, designer and curator - will choose the 10 artists to get the one-off bursaries.

The prize is named after the great painter, who hoped to leave part of his estate to help "distressed landscape painters" and "poor and decayed male artists" after his death in 1851. Last year, judges awarded the prize to all four of the shortlisted artists after they came together and insisted they should not be pitted against one another.
