Candidate: Catherine Yass, an artist represented in the collection of the Deutsche Bank, has been nominated for the Turner Prize.

Itís finally time: the candidates for this yearís Turner Prize have been nominated in London. Among those nominated are the film and photo artist Catherine Yass, whose works, such as Bankside: Cherrypicker, have been part of the collection of the Deutsche Bank for some time. Yass, who was nominated for the prize along with Fiona Banner, Liam Gillick, and Keith Tyson, attracted considerable attention this year both with her one-person exhibition at the London gallery aspreyjacques and as the British representative at the 10th Indian Triennial. The artist, who was born in 1963, studied at Goldsmith College; she became known for her brilliantly colorful photographic light boxes addressing architectural and social themes. The nomination of the young Briton confirms the collecting concept of the Deutsche Bank, whose goal is to promote promising young talent and to set a sign through purchasing their works. The announcement of the prizewinner will be taking place on December 8 in the Tate Britain and will be broadcast live on Channel 4 in British television.
