Last night Mike Stubbs, director of FACT, announced Marcus Soukup as the winner of the Liverpool Art Prize. The video and sound artist was chosen from a shortlist of four by a panel of judges drawn from across the city’s arts scene.

As well as winning a £2,000 prize Soukup will also display his work at the Walker Art Gallery next year. Curator of British art at the Walker Art Gallery, Dr Laura MacCulloch will be collaborating with him on his display, she said ‘I am thrilled that I will be working with Markus over the next few months to organise the first display of his work at the Walker Art Gallery.’
