With Turner Prize eligibility stopping at 50, a panel of creative professionals discuss the situation for ‘older’ artists.
Everyone is living longer – including artists. With the cut-off for Turner Prize nomination eligibility being 50, what does that represent for professional practice beyond that age in Scotland? Is it different within different art forms? Can the cultural infrastructure support an emergent young artist population alongside opportunities for older artists?
Chaired by Steve Slater, a panel of creative professionals including artists Sam Ainsley, ex head of the influential MFA department at The Glasgow School of Art; previous Turner nominee Christine Borland; award winning independent choreographer and dance-maker Janice Parker; and Neil Murray, Executive Producer, National Theatre of Scotland, discuss.
*This is one in a series of Turner Prize Thursdays accompanying the exhibition from 8 October – 14 January 2016. The Turner Prize 2015 exhibition will be open until 8pm every Thursday evening, accompanied by a different talk, panel discussion or curated event.
This panel discussion is part of Luminate, Scotland's creative ageing festival.
