Irish-born artist Duncan Campbell won Britain's prestigious Turner Prize Monday for his series of essayistic films "It for Others," which draws on an array of sources, including African art, dance, the Irish Republican Army and Marxism.The annual award for contemporary art was presented to Campbell by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, the star of "12 Years a Slave," in a televised ceremony at Tate Britain, which oversees the often-controversial prize.The works of Campbell and the three other finalists will be exhibited at Tate Britain until Jan. 4, 2015 .The award, named after the 19th-century English landscape and seascape painter J.M.W. Turner, has often courted controversy for shortlisting unconventional pieces of art and is regularly lampooned in Britain's tabloid press.
