Along with Laure Prouvost, Tino Sehgal, and David Shrigley, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye was shortlisted for the Turner Prize 2013. The jury consisted of Penelope Curtis, Director, Tate Britain, and Chair of the Jury, Annie Fletcher, Curator of Exhibitions, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Susanne Gaensheimer, Director MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, Declan Long, Writer and Lecturer, National College of Art and Design, Dublin, and Ralph Rugooff, Director, Hayward Gallery, London. The award was, in due course, made to Prouvost.

Prouvost, the eventual winner was shortlisted for “her new work Wantee commissioned with Grizedale Arts for inclusion in Schwitters in Britain at Tate Britain and for her two-part installation for the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, presented in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery.” Sehgal was shortlisted for “his pioneering projects This variation at documenta XIII and These associations at Tate Modern.” Shrigley was shortlisted “for his solo exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, David Shrigley: Brain Activity, which offered a comprehensive overview and new perspectives on his work.” And Yiadom-Boakye was shortlisted “for her exhibition Extracts and Verses at Chisenhale Gallery.”

All the above quotes come from the introduction to the Turner Prize catalogue, which also contained introductions - both written and visual - to these artists’ work.
