One of Europe's buzziest contemporary artworks is a massive cheeky sculpture
One of 2016's most acclaimed pieces of modern art is a sculpture called "Project for Door" by artist Anthea Hamilton.
Hamilton was recently nominated for the 2016 Turner Prize, one of the most coveted (and controversial) contemporary art awards in Europe, which honors a British visual artist under the age of 50. The award was established in 1984, and over the years, celebrities like Yoko Ono, Madonna, and Paul Smith have presented it, along with its £25,000 prize (about $28,065).
This year, the Turner judges selected Hamilton along with three other finalists: Michael Dean, Helen Marten, and Josephine Pryde. Their installations are now on display at London's Tate Modern, where they'll be judged by the same panel. The winner will be announced in December, but all the pieces will remain at the museum until January 2, 2017.
