That makes it the second most viewed show of nominated artists' work since the award was established in 1984.

This time around, the prize was handed to all four shortlisted artists as collective in a shock twist - Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo, and Tai Shani.

They came together to request that the judges consider awarding the accolade to them all in recognition of their 'shared commitment to urgent social and political causes'.
