The Turner Prize 2018

Join Tate Audio Describers Jack Jeans and Sara Sassanelli, plus an introduction from the exhibition Curator Elsa Coustou, for a description of the entries for this year’s Turner Prize.

All four artists nominated for the Turner Prize this year have chosen to submit video works so the exhibition layout is of a large lounge space with sofas from which doors lead into four separate dark screening rooms.

A challenge then for our Describers who nevertheless will be able to take us for a ten minute dip into each room and, using our microphone transmitter and earphones, will describe what’s happening on screen at the moment we walk in.

Please note that these rooms are more or less completely dark but we will have our Describers, our Curator, some Visitor Assistants and a couple of Volunteer Hosts on hand to ensure everybody who would like guiding assistance has the support they need.
