Ideally this print would want to share all it knows with you - Laure Prouvost
In 2018 The Hepworth Wakefield launched School Prints, an ambitious five-year project to inspire every primary school child in Wakefield District through contemporary art. Each year, the participating schools are gifted a set of limited edition prints by leading contemporary artists for display in school and are supported with an in-depth engagement programme led by artists and creative practitioners to encourage creativity across the curriculum. Artists Sir Michael Craig-Martin, Laure Prouvost and Linder Sterling have generously produced prints for the 2020 edition.
All profit made through the sale of the prints supports the learning and engagement programme. School Prints 2020 is kindly supported by The Eridge Trust and Phillips.

Laure Prouvost was born in Lille, France, in 1978 and is currently based in Antwerp. She received her BFA from Central St Martins, London, in 2002 and studied towards her MFA at Goldsmiths College, London. Language in its broadest sense permeates Prouvost's video, sound, installation and performance work. Known for her immersive and mixed-media installations that combine film and installation in humorous and idiosyncratic ways, her work addresses miscommunication and ideas becoming lost in translation. Playing with language as a tool for the imagination, Prouvost is interested in confounding linear narratives and expected associations among words, images and meaning.
