The shortlist for the Artes Mundi 5 Exhibition and Prize was announced today by Ben Borthwick, Artes Mundi’s Artistic Director, following an extensive research process by two selectors—Anders Kreuger, Curator at M HKA in Antwerp, Belgium and Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Curator of Contemporary Art at Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, New York and curatorial agent for dOCUMENTA (13). The selectors chose from over 750 nominations, including 576 individual artists from more than 90 countries, identifying artists whose work explores and comments on lived experience. The seven artists shortlisted for this year’s Artes Mundi Prize are:

Miriam Bäckström (born 1967, Sweden)
Tania Bruguera (born 1968, Cuba)
Phil Collins (born 1970, Great Britain)
Sheela Gowda (born 1957, India)
Teresa Margolles (born 1963, Mexico)
Darius Mikšys (born 1969, Lithuania)
Apolonija Šušterši? (born 1965, Slovenia) 

Some of the artists look at specific cultural or historical contexts while others engage with broader themes of human experience.
