Get to know Turner Prize nominated artist, Heather Phillipson
The Turner Prize 2022 is back in Liverpool and we’re inviting you to get to know each of the four nominees through our Meet the Artist event series. Join each of the artists with a guest of their choice, to explore the themes of their work.
For the second in our series, join artist Heather Phillipson. Nominated for her solo exhibition RUPTURE NO 1: blowtorching the bitten peach at Tate Britain and her Fourth Plinth commission THE END, Heather Phillipson’s wide-ranging practice involves collisions of wildly different materials, media and gestures in what she calls “quantum thought experiments”.
During this event, the artist will introduce a presentation by Professor Steve Brusatte, Chair of Palaeontology and Evolution, of the University of Edinburgh, on the evolution of mammals across pre-history, in relation to global climate changes – a major theme in her work. This talk will be followed by an audience Q&A.
£10 / £5 for Members
£5 Tate Collective
A combined ticket for all four Turner Prize-nominated artist talks is available for £30 / £14 Members and Tate Collective.
