Turner Prize Awarded
Thirty Eight year old London artist Jeremy Deller has been awarded the Turner Prize this year. The work is a video journey of the British artist traveling around Texas. It seems to be an improvement on previous winners of the prestigious, yet controversial Turner prize. Elephant dung, pickled cow, empty room with light switch, and an unmade bed have also won the prize before.
Turner prize shock: out of four serious competitors, the best artist wins
"The 38-year-old Londoner, who describes himself as "not a technically capable person", is almost unnaturally well-liked both by the art world and the general public."
