Artist Theaster Gates shares £40,000 Artes Mundi prize
Artes Mundi winner Theaster Gates says he will share his £40,000 prize with the nine other shortlisted artists.
Chicago-based Gates took first prize for his installation which he says challenges the dominance of Christian ideology in the western world.
He said: "Winning this award is my validation that this new body of work has a place in the world."
The artist told BBC Wales' arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas about his plan to share his winnings.
