Laure Prouvost, the winner of this year's Turner Prize, which was announced in Derry-Londonderry on Monday, will have her first solo show in a US museum next year. “Laure Prouvost” is due to run at New York’s New Museum from 12 February to 13 April 2014. A multi-channel video piece will be installed in the museum's lobby.

The French-born, British-based artist was a surprise winner of the prestigious prize presented by the Tate, London; Tino Sehgal was among the contenders. Prouvost won the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2011. Iwona Blazwick, the director of London's Whitechapel Gallery and the chairwoman of the Max Mara prize jury, says: "Prouvost’s gripping short films and intriguing environments unhinge the connection between language and comprehension to open out for us surreal horizons of meaning. I look forward to seeing her stellar artistic career go from strength to strength."
