Camille Henrot wins The Edvard Munch Art Award
Henrot is the first recipient of the award, which is given to an emerging artist no older than 40 years old who has been found (by an appointed jury that included curator Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Yale School of Art dean Robert Storr) to have demonstrated exceptional talent within the last five years. The award consists of a monetary prize and a solo exhibition at the Munch Museum.
