Sound-artist Susan Philipsz wins Britain’s Turner Prize for contemporary art

For the first time, a sound-artist has won Britan’s Turner prize.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tate Britain: the venue for the Turner Prize.
The Turner Prize, named after the painter J. M. W. Turner, is an annual prize presented to a British visual artist under the age of 50. Awarding the prize is organised by the Tate gallery and staged at Tate Britain. Since its beginnings in 1984 it has become the United Kingdom’s most publicised art award. Although it represents all media, and painters have also won the prize, it has become associated primarily with conceptual art.
