Turner Prize shortlist is announced

5th May 2011

The shortlist for the 2011 Turner Prize has been revealed, with four artists in the running for the GBP 25,000 award.

This year's candidates comprise Hamilton's Martin Boyce, whose work takes inspiration from a French photograph of concrete trees, and Glasgow-born Karla Black, who uses makeup and Vaseline to create her installations, among other cosmetics.

Halifax's Hilary Lloyd is shortlisted for her installation portraying construction sites on video screens, while Coventry artist George Shaw, who solely uses enamel paint, completes the list.

Each work will be displayed at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art between October and December, with the winner announced in a ceremony at the facility on December 5th.

Last year's Turner Prize was won by Glasgow artist Susan Philipsz for a sound installation that featured her singing three versions of the Scottish lament 'Lowlands Away'.

In doing so, Philipsz became the first artist to win the Turner Prize with a sound installation and only the fourth woman to scoop the award.
