Nothing courts controversy quite like the Turner Prize.
Opening on October 1 in the echoing white halls of Tramway, this year's Turner Prize exhibits are to include an a capella 24-minute opera, a supernatural study centre and 10 dining chairs wearing fur coats.
But what about the work that has previously courted this award?
The notorious event has been jubilantly rampaging through the art world since the early 1980s, leaving hefty words like 'scandalous' and 'nonsense' in its wake.
It once even had an exhibit banned from New York after health officials feared it would induce "vomiting among the visitors".
From dead cows in boxes to a suspended formaldehyde shark, it has been gleefully prodding the boundaries of modern art since 1984 and shows no sign of stopping - which makes the exhibition's arrival in Glasgow all the more interesting.
Take a look at some of the winners, nominees and events that have made the Turner Prize so notorious.
1992: Damien Hirst's The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living
Hirst's now infamous Tiger shark encased in formaldehyde was not actually the 1992 winner, but remains that year's standout nominee and one of the most iconic pieces of modern art history.
His later piece, Mother and Child Divided, displayed sections of a cow and calf in formaldehyde which did win him the 1995 Turner Prize.
1998: Chris Ofili's elephant dung
While Chris Ofili might have been the first painter to win the Turner in 12 years, not everyone was so keen on his idea to use resin covered elephant dung in the name of art.
An illustrator protested against his work by depositing dung on the steps of the Tate.
1999: Tracey Emin's My Bed
Perhaps the most well known work in the history of the Turner Prize, Emin's 'My Bed' featured her actual bed littered with dirty underwear and condoms.
Although she didn't win, many critics thought she should have, and the resulting media storm saw gallery attendance rise to a record 140,000, with an average of 2,000 visitors a day.
2001: Martin Creed's The Lights Going On and Off
Pretty much what it says on the box, Martin Creed displayed a bare room with lights which indeed - turned on and off.
Madonna famously presented this prize, but caused her own special form of controversy when she swore before the watershed, earning Channel 4 a firm reprimand from the Independent Television Commission.
2002: Fiona Banner's Arsewoman in Wonderland
"It's art. But is it porn?" Even The Guardian wasn't sure when it came to 'Arsewoman' which is why they famously called in British porn star Ben Dover to cast his opinion.
It was so controversial, Prince Charles spoke out against the Turner Prize and Banksy himself shared his opinion, spraying 'Mind The Crap' on the steps of the Tate.
2003: Sex, by brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman
The Chapman brothers trademark power to shock is well established, and 'Sex' was no different, with their bronze sculpture of mutilated bodies bound to a tree while maggots, flies and rats run over the bark.
For their work 'Death' - organisers had to take the rare step of displaying a "health warning" sign for parents outside the gallery doors to indicate that the exhibit contained explicit material.
And as for this year's offerings?
Architectural collective Assemble are using the exhibition to launch their own range of home improvement objects - including doorknobs and fireplaces - based on designs they have created for a regeneration project.
Janice Kerbel has written the avant-garde opera, which will be performed in the gallery at regular intervals by six singers.
Bonnie Camplin has installed a supernatural study, with five TV sets showing interviews with people who claim to have had paranormal experiences - plus books, leaflets and a photocopier for visitors to use to print out their favourite findings.
And Nicole Wermers has her contemporary art piece on show presenting chairs with fur coats.
