Assemble: Turner Prize Winners In Conversation With Artlyst – Exclusive Interview




Assemble, the 2015 winners of this years coveted Turner Prize are a collective consisting of 18 members. Their practice crosses fields of design, architecture and craft to create playful installation environments.

They were nominated for their Granby Four Streets project which saw the transformation of a dilapidated group of terraced houses in Liverpool into works of art. Locals welcomed the project with open arms stating that art mustn’t be elitist and that it should be included in the day to day lives of all people across all social divides.
