Art review: Turner Prize 2011, Baltic, Newcastle

This is a melancholy show, from Martin Boyce’s windswept library, in which a few leaves from his 2009 exhibition for the Scottish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale appear to have blown in with the draught, to George Shaw’s paintings of boarded-up shops. Film-maker Hilary Lloyd looks at the moon and Karla Black, who represented Scotland in Venice in 2011, has presented a beautiful room of painterly sculptures, which seem elegantly faded and purposefully tentative, as well as characteristically exuberant.
