"Trying to make sense of [her] film is like trying to weave together memories splintered in dreams - impossible, but you want to keep trying. Ms. Prouvost is an artist-poet, the real thing." -- Holland Cotter, New York Times
Fionn Meade guest-curates two evenings of Laure Prouvost's From the Sky, a performance mixing video, music, and live narrative, marking the French-born/UK-based artist's first evening-length performance.
Prouvost, a recent recipient of the prestigious Turner Prize, opened her first U.S. solo museum presentation at The New Museum in New York City this winter. Meade, a New York-based curator, writer, and faculty member at Bard College's Center for Curatorial Studies, was recently named a senior curator at The Walker Art Center.
