Turner Prize 2015

Turner Prize 2015 rewards for the first time a collective of architects who, ignoring the art market, work to combat social divisions and brings art out of galleries.

The Turner Prize 2015 has been awarded to Assemble – a collective based in London who work across the fields of art, architecture and design –, it was announced at Tramway, Glasgow, in partnership with Tate.
The jury has awarded the prize to Assemble who work in tandem with communities to realise a ground up approach to regeneration, city planning and development in opposition to corporate gentrification.

They draw on long traditions of artistic and collective initiatives that experiment in art, design and architecture. In doing so they offer alternative models to how societies can work.

The long term collaboration between Granby Four Streets and Assemble shows the importance of artistic practice being able to drive and shape urgent issues in the post-industrial era.
