Sussex-based Identity announces partnership with Turner Prize 2023

Identity, the global event agency founded in Sussex, has announced its partnership with Turner Prize 2023.

The prize, named after the great painter J M W Turner, is now in its 38 year and continues to grab international attention and stimulate discussions well beyond the art world.

The British artists on this year’s shortlist are Jesse Darling, Rory Pilgrim, Ghislaine Leung and Barbara Walker. This is the first time the Turner Prize is being held in Sussex.

The winner will be announced on December 5. The exhibition of the artists’ work will be at Towner Eastbourne from September 28, 2023 to April 14, 2024

Michael Gietzen, CEO of Identity, said: “Identity and the Turner Prize is a perfect match. We are delighted to be supporting this avant-garde event.

“It’s an exciting time for Identity to be at the forefront of what is widely considered a cultural barometer – not just in the UK but internationally.

“The Turner Prize, a prominent cultural British event, shares many similarities with the high-profile (British and international) events that Identity has produced and created.

“From a creative perspective, we both turn heads, engage audiences, grab headlines and have stood the test of time.

“The fact that the Turner Prize 2023 comes to Towner Eastbourne, where Identity has its HQ, is a bonus.”
