Designed for all
All voices have been encouraged, irrespective of their level of social recognition, from those in the shielding community, newly arrived citizens and everyone in-between. This is a modern-day reflection of our living social history.
With thanks to Artichoke who donated the fabric for this project as legacy to their suffrage sashes of the 2018 ‘processions’ project.
The Turner Prize 2021 was supported by the AKO Foundation, Avanti West Coast and Arts Council England, with additional support from ArtAV, The John Browne Charitable Trust and The Uggla Family Foundation.
