Artist and founding member of Sonic Youth Kim Gordon will present the award for this year’s Turner Prize in Glasgow in December.

Gordon, whose current activities include guitar duo Body/Head with Bill Nace, is the author of two books whose artwork has been exhibited at the Benaki Museum in Athens and 303 Gallery in New York this year. She will be presenting the award at a ceremony at Tramway on Monday December 7 in an event broadcast live on Channel 4.

The Turner Prize exhibition runs until January 27 2016 at Tramway and features work by the four nominated artists: Bonnie Camplin, Janice Kerbel, Nicole Wermers and the Assemble art collective.

Paul Bush, director of events at VisitScotland, says: ‘As one of the world’s most prestigious visual arts awards, it is fitting that Kim Gordon, someone who has earned widespread acclaim as both a musician and artist, has been chosen to present the Turner Prize in 2015.’
