Resolved Question: A Turner Prize exhibition
As you may know, the Turner Prize exhibitions will commence on the 23rd of October in Derry~Londonderry in honour of Derry City of Culture 2013. As it happens, this is where I attend my secondary school. My art teacher has given me a homework, look for an inspiration in any past turner prize exhibitions and draw it. I'm not the best art student and have little knowledge of past turner prize winners. Could anyone guide me to something that can be drawn/ created requiring moderate skill but can make an impression? I would appreciate a few answers to choose from. Thank you
