DESCRIPTION

In February 2014, the New Museum will host the first solo museum presentation in the United States of the work of artist Laure Prouvost.

Born in 1978 in Lille, France, Laure Prouvost lives and works in London, UK. Her work has been exhibited at the Tate Britain, London, Whitechapel Gallery, London, CCA, Glasgow, Portikus, Frankfurt, Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp, and the National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Moscow. She has screened work in film festivals internationally and won the Principal Prize in both the 56th and 57th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. In 2013, Prouvost was awarded the Turner Prize for her piece Wantee (2013) and the Max Mara Art Prize for Women with an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. Her work for the Turner Prize is on view through January 2014 at CCA Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, and Prouvost has upcoming solo exhibitions at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin, and Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City.
