Statement

In the last decade, McQueen’s work has been shown extensively in museums around the world and his work has been acquired by major institutions including the Guggenheim, MOCA, Tate and the Centre Pompidou. He won the Turner Prize in 1999.

In 2002 McQueen was awarded the OBE, and received a commission from Artangel. The same year he participated in Documenta XI and since then he has been the subject of several major solo exhibitions, including those held at the Fondazione Prada and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

McQueen was commissioned by Robert Storr to create two new films, Gravesend and Unexploded, for the Italian Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. It has recently been announced that he will represent Britain at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009.

His first feature film, Hunger, is about the last six weeks of the life of the Irish republican hunger striker Bobby Sands and is due for release in late 2008. It has already won the 2008 Camera D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Sydney Film Prize at the Sydney Film Festival.

Steve McQueen lives and works in Amsterdam .

Queen and Country has been produced in collaboration with Thomas Dane Gallery, London . Steve McQueen is also represented by Marian Goodman Gallery, New York, Paris.
