The Turner Prize 2007 has been awarded to Mark Wallinger, it was announced at Tate Liverpool yesterday. The 25,000 British Pounds prize was presented by Dennis Hopper.

Mark Wallinger was shortlisted for State Britain at Tate Britain, a direct representation of the banners and paraphernalia of Brian Haw’s protest in Parliament Square. The jury commended its immediacy, visceral intensity and historic importance. The work combines a bold political statement with art’s ability to articulate fundamental human truths.

The jury stressed the strength of the exhibition at Tate Liverpool and wished to record their admiration for the outstanding presentations produced by all four artists.

The winner was chosen by a jury whose members are: Michael Bracewell, writer and critic; Fiona Bradley, Director, Fruitmarket Gallery; Edinburgh; Thelma Golden, Director & Chief Curator, Studio Museum, Harlem; Miranda Sawyer, freelance broadcaster and writer and Christoph Grunenberg, Director of Tate Liverpool and Chairman of the Jury.

The Turner Prize is being held at Tate Liverpool this year as a curtain-raiser for Liverpool’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2008. The exhibition, featuring work from the four shortlisted artists Zarina Bhimji, Nathan Coley, Mike Nelson and Mark Wallinger, will continue until 13 January at Tate Liverpool. The prize will return to Tate Britain in 2008.
