The Turner Prize is one of the most important prizes in the art world. It was created in 1984, occurs once a year and is organized by the Tate galleries. The purpose of the Award is to reward diverse forms of expressions of art, not only paintings. For the first time since its creation, all the works by the past Turner Prize winners have been gathered in one unique exhibition.

Every year, the Turner prize is hosted at the Tate Britain and is considered as a majorly anticipated cultural event for the nation of Great Britain. The event always receives major coverage from the national and international media. The Tate (formerly the Tate Gallery) is a group of four English national art museums, which includes the Tate Britain , Tate Modern , Tate Liverpool, and Tate St Ives.
