Turner Prize: 30th Anniversary Shortlist Revealed
An artist whose work includes erotic pictures with intimate details sandpapered away and a screen-printer who has highlighted the plight of poorly paid cleaners are in the running for this year's Turner Prize.
The field in contention for the UK's best known art prize also includes an artist who narrates slideshows and a film-maker whose subjects include the car maker John DeLorean.
The winner of £25,000 from the shortlist will be announced on December 1 at the Tate Britain in London.
The gallery will house an exhibition of works by those nominated later this year, from September 30 to January 4.
Penelope Curtis, Tate Britain director and chair of the jury, said: "The four shortlisted artists share a strong international presence and an ability to adapt, restage and reinterpret their own and others' works, very often working in collaborative social contexts."
The Turner, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, is given to a British or British-based artist under 50 for outstanding work in the past year.
James Richards, who is the youngest on the list at the age of 30, is recognised for his work exhibited at the Venice Biennale.
This includes the film Rosebud, in which he took shots of censored books in a library in Tokyo in which raunchy photos had been changed to remove close-up details.
Tris Vonna-Michell is nominated for his semi-improvised presentations.
Many of these use slide projections for a pre-arranged period, with an egg-timer to help the 31-year-old keep track.
Screen-printer Ciara Phillips often turns her exhibition spaces into workshops and the 37-year-old sometimes creates banners and posters with community groups.
Duncan Campbell's presentation It For Others has earned the film-maker a place on the list.
The work features archive material as well as new footage, including a new dance work by choreographer Michael Clark.
As well as the main prize, the other nominees receive £5,000.
The aim of the prize is to promote discussion of contemporary art.
The 2013 award went to French artist Laure Prouvost for her video installation set in a mocked-up tea party.
