Manchester Jewish Museum is reopening this summer with a unique installation by Turner Prize-winning artist Laure Prouvost as part of Manchester International Festival 2021. ‘The long waited, weighted, gathering’ will run from 2 July to 18 October 2021 to all museum visitors with admission tickets going on sale in May.
Laure will transform The Ladies Gallery of our breath-taking 1874 synagogue into an immersive experience where the voices of the past will surround you. Using film, sound and textiles, Laure will transport you through the synagogue’s history, surrounded by the echoes of the lives that once resonated there.
Known across the art world for her sumptuous, immersive films and installations, Laure is adept at toying with expectations and offering playful new ways of viewing the world. Originally from France, Laure won the Turner Prize in 2013 and has created installations for the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and represented France at the Venice Biennale international art exhibition.
