Late last year, 35-year-old French artist Laure Prouvost won the acclaimed Turner Prize, a Tate Museum-affiliated award of $41,000 given to an artist under 50. That she is a woman and French also made Prouvost’s winning extremely rare. Her dreamy, Instagram-like, fragmented films beat out established artists and received accolades at numerous festivals. Her latest presentation at New Museum, “For Forgetting,” a semicircular collage-mural and multichannel video installation, marks the first time Prouvost has exhibited her solo work in the U.S., and features two new films that center around memory and forgetting.
