press release

This exhibition will be the first US solo museum presentation of the work of 2013 Turner Prize winner Laure Prouvost (b. 1978). Prouvost will present For Forgetting (2014), a new, immersive multichannel video installation for the Lobby Gallery. In her films and installations, Prouvost unhinges commonplace and expected connections between language, image, and perception. Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, she exposes the unstable relationship between imagination and reality, and opens up a space where audiences can engage provocatively with surreal aspects of meaning. The exhibition is curated by Margot Norton, Assistant Curator.

Support for Laure Prouvost: For Forgetting is generously provided by the Institut Fran├žais. The Producers Council of the New Museum is also gratefully acknowledged. This exhibition is also made possible, in part, by the Toby Devan Lewis Emerging Artists Exhibition Fund.
