2015年的透纳奖入选名单再次证实了伦敦艺术大学在艺术领域无与伦比的声誉。三位伦艺教员组成的艺术团队、两位校友以及一位前教员都被提名透纳奖。

四位候选人为艺术家:Nicole Wermers, Janice Kerbel, Bonnie Camplin以及一个艺术团队; 12月7日宣布结果时,他们中将会有人成为第十二位获得透纳奖的伦敦艺术大学校友。

伦敦艺术大学中央圣马丁纯艺专业系主任Alex Schady说:“我们十分激动地得知今年的透纳奖所有候选人都与伦敦艺术大学有着渊源。 令人兴奋的是中央圣马丁学院以及伦敦艺术大学在全球艺术领域都有着深刻的影响力,这不仅代表着我们在该领域的影响,还很大程度反映出我们对学生的雄心壮志以及学生自己的远大抱负。”

The shortlist announced today reiterated UAL’s unrivalled reputation in the art world. Two alumni, three staff members as part of an art collective and one former staff member were all named in the shortlist.

The four nominees are artists Nicole Wermers, Janice Kerbel, Bonnie Camplin and the collective Assemble; one of whom will join the 12 UAL alumni who have already won the Prize when the winner is announced on 7 December.

It’s exciting to have people connected with Central Saint Martins and UAL become so influential in the global art world. This not only represents our impact in this field, but very much reflects the ambition that we have for our students and that they have for themselves.”
