Common Practice


Turner Prize 2014


Common Practice is very happy to congratulate this years Turner Prize nominees on their exhibition, which open next Monday at Tate Britain.

A number of the nominees have long-standing links with Common Practice organisations: Ciara Phillips was nominated for her Showroom exhibition Workshop (2010 ongoing) (2013); James Richards had his first major solo show with Chisenhale in 2014, and in 2007/8 took part in the LUX Associate Artists programme; and Duncan Campbell also had a major show with Chisenhale in 2009. You can also read more about some of the artists work in Afterall: Campbell and Stuart Comer were in conversation for Afterall Online in 2010 and Melissa Gronlund considers Richardss project Disambiguation in the forthcoming issue of Afterall journal. Tris Vonna-Michell had his first major exhibition at our peer institution Cubitt in 2007.

As organisations we are proud to have been able to support these artists at crucial times in their careers and to give them the opportunity to make new works, and we are pleased that they have gone on to achieve recognition on national and international platforms.

We are also organising an event in November to explore the notion of public value specifically, the value behind public funding for organisations and we invite you to check our website for further information as the event gets under way.
