Turner Prize joint winner Helen Cammock
See works by this year's co-winner in Reading
The Turner Prize is Britain's most high-profile contemporary art award and known for its shock value. Last night it was announced that all four finalists would share this year's prize - Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Tai Shani, Oscar Murillo and Helen Cammock. Congratulations to all four winners, but we're especially pleased for the last name on that list.
Helen Cammock currently has two works on display across Reading. Head down to Reading Museum and you can take in their collection of poetic and thought-provoking screen prints (some of which they had to loan to the Turner Contemporary, Margate, for the Turner Prize exhibition).
And if you take a wander around the Crown Street-Southampton Street area, you can see the final iteration of The Sound of Words. This series of twelve billboard posters was created as part of an artist-led workshop in association with the exhibition at the museum, and is presented by Reading International.
It really is wonderful news to have works from a Turner Prize winner exhibited in Reading, so do go and see them while you have the chance.
