Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal winners, Nottingham Contemporary, Sculpture since Hepworth and Moore

The CILIP Carnegie Medal, and CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal are the most prestigious prizes for literature for children and young people. Both winners were announced today and are on tonight's Front Row. Elizabeth Acevedo’s Carnegie-winning novel tells the story of Xiomara, a Dominican-American girl growing up modern-day Harlem. Elizabeth explains why she chose to unfold the story of The Poet X in a long series of short lyrics. The Lost Words, for which illustrator Jackie Morris has won the Kate Greenaway Medal, is also a poetry book. It's her collaboration with writer Robert Macfarlane, inspired by the words left out of a new children’s dictionary, words such as bluebell and acorn. Jackie tells Stig how she approached illustrating the poems with three very different images, but of the same subject. As we head into the final weeks of this year’s prestigious Art Fund Museum of the Year competition, Front Row begins looking at the five shortlisted institutions vying for the top prize of £100,000. Today it’s the turn of Nottingham Contemporary, and its director Sam Thorne joins Stig to explain why he believes Nottingham Contemporary would be a worthy winner. It was the success of the Yorkshire-born sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth that contributed to the UK’s largest county becoming the pre-eminent destination for sculpture. As the opening of the inaugural Yorkshire Sculpture International draws near, Andrew Bonacina, chief curator at The Hepworth Wakefield, and Jan Dalley, arts editor of the Financial Times, discuss how sculpture has evolved since the heyday of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
