Turner Prize 2014

A further three Glasgow School of Art graduates have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2014. Tris Vonna Michell (BA in Fine Art Photography, 2005), Ciara Phillips (MFA, 2004) and Duncan Campbell (MFA, 1998) have all been nominated for the 30th Turner prize.
Tris Vonna-Michell, is noted for his semi-improvised presentations, often using slide projections, for a pre-arranged period, with an egg-timer to let him know when he has reached his limit.  He has been nominated for a solo show in Brussels.
Ciara Phillips often transforms her exhibition spaces into workshops and sometimes works with community groups, which have included Justice for Domestic Workers, creating banners and posters. She is nominated for a show in London in which she was inspired by a pioneering artist Corita Kent.
Film-maker Duncan Campbell has been nominated for his presentation at the Scottish Pavilion of the 2013 Venice Biennale in which he screened Chris Marker and Alain Resnais's 1953 film Statues Also Die alongside his response – a film which featured choreography by Michael Clark and explored the commercialisation of African art.
