  • Turner Prize 2011: GEORGE SHAW whose paintings, with their deeply personal juxtaposition of subject matter and material, lie intriguingly on the edge of tradition.

  • Turner Prize 2011: HILARY LLOYD who combines still and moving images, sound and the three dimensional forms of AV playback equipment to portray the urban environment.

  • Turner Prize 2011: KARLA BLACK who has an innovative approach to sculpture and makes substantial works made in otherwise temporary spaces and materials.

  • Turner Prize 2011: MARTIN BOYCE who holds the viewer with atmospheric sculptural installations, combining references to design history and text, marked by a subtle attention to detail.

Established in 1984 to celebrate new developments in contemporary art, the Prize is awarded each year to a British artist under fifty for an outstanding exhibition or other presentation of their work in the twelve months preceding.
