Turner Prize heads to Gateshead in 2011

16th September 2010

Next year's Turner Prize will be presented in Gateshead at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, marking the first time the event has moved to a non-Tate venue outside of London.

The winner will be announced in December 2011 and in the weeks leading up to the ceremony the venue will stage an exhibition of work by the shortlisted artists.

Chief curator Laurence Sillars said the Baltic's staging of the event was 'tremendously exciting', labelling the Turner Prize one of the most important and recognised honours for contemporary art in the world.

He added: 'We look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far to Baltic to see this extraordinary exhibition and to participate in the exhilarating debate that never fails to accompany the prize.'

This year's Turner Prize will be announced at Tate Britain on December 6th. Shortlisted candidates include Dexter Dalwood, who has been nominated for a solo exhibition at Tate St Ives featuring paintings and collages inspired by historical and contemporary events, such as The Death of David Kelly
