Arts & museums

No fewer than six Turner Prize winners and twelve Turner Prize nominees have hailed from, trained in, or worked out of the city in recent years.

German curator Hans Ulrich Obrist described this success as the 'Glasgow Miracle' and Glasgow School of Art has since been awarded a research grant to uncover the reasons behind this phenomenon. Reinforcing the city's position as a centre for cutting-edge art, Glasgow's Tramway hosted the 2015 Turner Prize.
