Hole in the wall

The UK’s BIGGEST art show, which attracts almost 100,000 visitors, is open  at Tate Britain in London until January.

The show is for British artists under 50, and the winner picks up a handy £25k. Previous exhibits include Tracey Emin’s unmade bed and Damien Hirst putting dead animals in formaldehyde.

If London’s too far to travel, take a gander at this year’s nominees on this very page. The quartet are:  Michael Dean, a sculptor “concerned with physical presentation of language”; Helen Marten, who makes “work full of models and motifs taken from contemporary visual culture;” Josephine Pryde, who “explores the nature of image making and display;” and Anthea Hamilton, who made an 18ft-tall bottom.
