Watch now: Laure Prouvost in conversation at Whitechapel Gallery
30 October 2020
Watch a recording of an exclusive Whitechapel Gallery Patrons in-conversation event between Director Iwona Blazwick and Laure Prouvost.
In 2011, London-based French artist Laure Prouvost was announced the winner of the fourth Max Mara Art Prize for Women at Whitechapel Gallery. Following her residency at the British School at Rome and at the Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto in Biella, Prouvost presented at Whitechapel Gallery in 2013 an installation inspired by the aesthetic and sensuous pleasures of Italy – Farfromwords: cars mirrors eat raspberries when swimming through the sun, to swallow sweet smells.
The two discussed a decade of Laure’s creative development, as well as her new body of work created for the artist's first solo exhibition since 2017 at Lisson Gallery in London.
