The artists shortlisted for this year's Turner Prize are: Karla Black, Martin Boyce, Hilary Lloyd and George Shaw.
|Karla Black, What to Ask for Others, 2011|
Karla Black uses a wide range of, sometimes unconventional and often fragile, materials (medicines, packaging, clothing, carpets, foodstuffs, toiletries, make-up) to make sculptures which evoke feelings about the body and psychological fragility.
|Martin Boyce, A Library of Leaves|
Martin Boyce's installations have the character of Modernist design and create what he describes as 'a peculiar landscape: a collapse of the interior and the exterior world'.
|Hilary Lloyd, Man, 2010|
|George Shaw, The Resurface, 2010|
The 2011 Turner Prize exhibition will be held at the Baltic in Gateshead.Read Adrian Searle's response to the shortlist.
