One of Britain’s leading black female artists, Lubaina Himid, has become the oldest person to be nominated for British art’s most high-profile award.
At 62, Himid is eligible for the £25,000 Turner Prize after the award abolished its ban on over-50s.
Another key black British artist is also recognised after the rule change – 52-year-old Hurvin Anderson.
The multicultural shortlist is completed by German-born Andrea Buttner and Londoner Rosalind Nashashibi.
In what was once the domain of Young British Artists in the 1990s, the youngest person on the Turner shortlist this year is Nashashibi at 43.
The winner will be announced at the Ferens gallery in Hull on 5 December.
