Four finalists competing for the £40,000 art prize
A figurative painter, a deviser of performance, a film-maker and a popular maker of darkly comic drawings have been shortlisted for this year's Turner Prize.
Established in 1984, the Turner Prize is awarded to a contemporary artist under 50, living, working or born in Britain, who is judged to have put on the best exhibition of the last 12 months. The selected artist will win a £40,000 cash prize. Previous winners include Damien Hirst and Antony Gormley.
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, 35, lives and works in London and is of Ghanaian descent. She has been nominated for her Extracts and Verses exhibition at the Chisenhale Gallery. She attended Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Falmouth College of Arts and the Royal Academy.

According to the Turner Prize organisers, her "intriguing" paintings "appear traditional but are in fact much more innovative. Her portraits of imaginary people use invented pre-histories and raise pertinent questions about how we read pictures in general, particularly with regard to black subjects."Tino Seghal, 36, British-born but based in Berlin, has been shortlisted for the summer show These Associations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall, an interactive performance with the public in which Sehgal's band of participants gave gallery-goers intimate, uplifting experiences. Sehgal has been shortlisted for this and for his 2012 Documenta show in Germany.
"Both structured and improvised, Seghal's intimate works consist purely of live encounters between people and demonstrate a keen sensitivity to their institutional context," said the organisers. Laure Prouvost, the youngest at 34, won the fourth Max Mara art prize for women in 2011 for her short films and installation work. She's shortlisted for a new work Wantee, a surreal tea party set up featured in Tate Britain's Schwitters in Britain exhibition, and her Max Mara art prize installation, a film and collage diorama at the Whitechapel Gallery.
Her "unique" approach to film-making employs strong story-telling, quick cuts, montage and deliberate misuse of language to create surprising and unpredictable work," say the organisers.


David Shrigley, 46, the oldest of the bunch, has been shortlisted for his Hayward Show’ Brain Activity’. He is based in Glasgow and he is best known for his witty and piquant, cartoonish drawings and animations.
The exhibition, according to Turner Prize organisers, was a "comprehensive overview" that revealed "his black humour, macabre intelligence and infinite jest".

This year's Turner exhibition will be held at Ebrington in Derry-Londonderry, 2013's UK City of Culture and the winner will be announced on December 2.
