There has been an explosion of prizes within the art world in recent years. Why is this? Is competition the best environment for artists to make work and for the public to encounter new work? How do we care for art, audiences, and art works in the context of competition?

As part of Turner//Return, Ferens Art Gallery is please to present Between Competition and Care, a panel discussion on the nature of art prizes with Sarah Munro, Director of BALTIC, and Ben Borthwick, Artistic Director of Plymouth Art Centre, with Turner Prize curators Sacha Craddock and George Vasey.
