  • Widely popular British artist David Shrigley has been nominated for the 2013 Turner Prize following from his solo show at London's Hayward Gallery entitled "Brain Activity." Organised by the Tate Gallery, the prize is one of the UK's most prestigious contemporary art awards, with the winner awarded £25,000. Penelope Curtis, director of Tate Britain and chairwoman of the judges, said Shrigley had been overlooked until now because he was funny. "It's hard to be humorous and be taken seriously. But this show had been more substantial and more revealing than the judges expected," she said. The other nominees are Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Laure Prouvost, and Tino Sehgal. The Turner Prize exhibition will be shown in Ebrington in Derry-Londonderry from 23 October to 5 January, 2014. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on 2 December, 2013.

    • Hopefully Tino wins. I participated last year and it would be wonderful to do so again.
