Rebecca Warren (born 1965) is a British visual artist who is particularly well known for her sculptures. In 2006 Warren was a nominee for the 2006 Turner Prize. The artist currently lives and works in London.

Early life[edit]

Rebecca Warren was born in Pinhoe, Devon. She studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths' College, University of London receiving a BA (Hons) (1989–92) before taking her MA in Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Art, London (1992–93). She then took on an artist-in-residence place at the Ruskin School, Oxford University, Oxford (1993–1994).


Until 1997 a large part of Warren's output was produced as a collaboration with artist Fergal Stapleton.

She was nominated for the Turner Prize for her sculptural installations in solo shows at Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, and Galerie Daniel Buchholz, Cologne, as well as her work in the Tate Triennial 2006. A representative of the Tate Gallery wrote, "Her works combine a wide range of sources with a strong formal awareness, injecting conventional materials with a sensual physicality to create something wholly new.".[1]

In 2009 the Serpentine Gallery exhibited the first major solo survey of her work.[2] In 2010, The Renaissance Society, in collaboration with the Art Institute of Chicago, presented Warren's first solo exhibition in an American museum.[3]

In 2014, she was made Professor of Painting and Sculpture at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf [4]
