Two nominees of the Turner Prize 2017 have been selected from exhibitions at Arts Council England supported galleries in the Midlands.

Lubaina Himid has been nominated for her participation in the group exhibition The Place is Here at Nottingham Contemporary, as well as her solo exhibition at Modern Art Oxford. Her work includes painting, installation, drawing and printmaking which addresses important questions of personal and political identity.
