We are delighted to share the news that Oscar Murillo has been nominated for the 2019 Turner Prize. Our current exhibition, Oscar Murillo: Violent Amnesia is his first solo exhibition at a UK public institution since his acclaimed 2013 exhibition at South London Gallery. Murillo was also part of Actions. The image of the world can be different (10 February – 2 April 2018), our reopening group show which included over 38 different artists.

Murillo is one of four nominees, in a list of exciting artists working today. The other artists who have been shortlisted are Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock and Tai Shani. Every other year, the prize leaves Tate Britain and this year, Turner Contemporary in Margate will be hosting the exhibition (28 September 2019 – 12 January 2020) and the awards ceremony which takes place on 3 December 2019.

Murillo was praised by the Turner Prize jury for the way he pushes the boundaries of materials, particularly in his paintings. His work incorporates a variety of techniques and media including painting, drawing, performance, sculpture and sound, often using recycled materials and fragments from his studio. Murillo’s work reflects on his own experience of displacement and the social fallout of globalisation.

Oscar Murillo: Violent Amnesia is at Kettle’s Yard until 23 June. On 17 May, the artist will be curating our Late event, an evening with pop-up talks, art activities, music and more! Murillo will also be performing as part of the event. Tickets are still available, click here to find out more and to book now.
