Laure Prouvost: Oma-je Artist Tour in French
Laure Prouvost’s exhibition Oma-je celebrates her relationship to artistic predecessors including John Latham, Louise Bourgeois, Agnes Varda, and Niki de Saint Phalle, amongst others. The exhibition also features recent works that look to embodied ways of knowing for inspiration, shifting from Grandfather to Grandmother and forefather to foremother. Prouvost is known for her playful use of language, translation and transliteration, experimental narrated video, and immersive and surprising installations that transport visitors into unfamiliar worlds created largely from everyday objects.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience this intriguing exhibition through the voice of the artist in French, her first language.
Admission is by donation; free entry for members and youth.
