Tate Britain

Turner Prize 2007

19 Oct 2007 - 13 Jan 2008

The Turner Prize 2007 at Tate Liverpool
The Turner Prize 2007 has been awarded to Mark Wallinger.

Mark Wallinger was shortlisted for State Britain at Tate Britain, a direct representation of the banners and paraphernalia of Brian Haw’s protest in Parliament Square. The jury commended its immediacy, visceral intensity and historic importance. The work combines a bold political statement with art’s ability to articulate fundamental human truths.

This was the first time the Prize had been held outside of London, forming part of Tate’s programme to celebrate Liverpool as European Capital of Culture 2008.
