United Kingdom

Turner Prize

The Turner Prize is awarded every year to a British artist under 50 for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work. The Prize was established in 1984 by the Tate Gallery's Patrons of New Art and is intended to promote public discussion of new developments in contemporary British art. It is widely recognised as one of the most important and prestigious awards for the visual arts in Europe.

Bucksbaum Award

Whitney Museum of American Art director Maxwell L. Anderson announced on March 10, 2000, the first biennial Bucksbaum Award, a $100,000 prize to be awarded every two years to an artist living and working in the United States. It is currently the largest award designated for an individual in the visual arts in the world.

The Bucksbaum Award has been established by The Martin Bucksbaum Family Foundation and the Whitney Museum of American Art to honor a living American artist whose work demonstrates a singular combination of talent and imagination–a person who will make significant contributions to the visual arts. Every other year, that artist will be chosen from among the artists in the Whitney's signature show, the "Biennial Exhibition."
