Jeremy Deller is an artist from London who creates conceptual, video and installation work. Politics and the notions of collaboration and participation are central to his work. He curates, produces and directs a broad range of projects including orchestrated events, films and publications which draw attention to forms of culture on the fringes of the mainstream or reveal hidden histories.
Having graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art with a degree in Art History specialising in Baroque Art and Architecture, Deller went on to complete an MA degree in Art History at Sussex University. Deller's work has shown in exhibitions across Europe and in institutions such as Tate Liverpool, serving as a Trustee of the Tate Gallery from 2007 to 2011. Deller was awarded The Turner Prize in 2004.
