Grayson Perry asked in the Reith Lectures: where are the boundaries of contemporary art? This annual awards ceremony suggests there aren’t any. From dirty beds to dead sharks, anything can be art – but not everyone can enjoy it.

So in a bid to alter its elitist, London-centric image, the Turner Prize turns away from England for the first time ever – to Londonderry. Portraitist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, drawer and sculptor David Shrigley, performance artist Tino Sehgal and film-maker Laure Prouvost are this year’s nominees.

Do not fear - it’s still as strange as ever. Shrigley set up a giant naked man for visitors to draw at this year’s accompanying show, while Prouvost hosted a mad hatter’s tea party.

Actress Saoirse Ronan will announce the winner; Lauren Laverne presents.
