Counter Acts: Celebrating 35 years of shared history with the Turner Prize

Counter Acts highlights the extraordinary history UAL has had on art’s most prestigious prize. Since its inception, over half of all winners of the Turner Prize have studied or taught at the university but this is the first time all six colleges have come together to celebrate our unique contribution.

Drawing on a diverse range of perspectives and approaches, the exhibition will reflect on art practices that have defined the university’s past, as well as those which will shape its future.

The exhibition is curated by Osei Bonsu, UAL alumni and Curator of International Art at Tate Modern. Contributing artists include:
