Profiles

Elizabeth Price

Elizabeth Price was born in Bradford in 1966 and grew up in Luton. She attended Putteridge Comprehensive High School and then studied at the Ruskin School of Art, the Royal College of Art and the University of Leeds.

In 2012 she was awarded the Turner Prize for her video installation THE WOOLWORTHS CHOIR OF 1979. In 2013 she won the Contemporary Art Society Annual Award with the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology. She has exhibited in group exhibitions internationally and has had solo exhibitions at Tate Britain; Chicago Institute of Art; Julia Stoschek Foundation, Düsseldorf; The Baltic, Newcastle upon Tyne; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and The Whitworth, Manchester.

Elizabeth Price creates short videos that explore the social and political histories of artefacts, architectures and documents. Her works often begin with research into archives and museum collections and always involve a complex process of layering and digital editing – of the written word, the image, sound and rhythm – resulting in works which are formal, immaculate and restrained, but also lush and humorous. 

Pop music and its technologies are featured often in Price’s work and her soundtracks include percussion and songs. This interest in pop is long-standing as Price was a founding member and songwriter for the 80s indie band Talulah Gosh.
