He currently directs Wkshps, a multidisciplinary design practice; is artistic director of FRONT International 2022, the Cleveland triennial of contemporary art; and organizes Commune, an emergent, multiform workshop that practices artistic tools for social transformation. Previously, Prem founded the exhibition space P! and the design studio Project Projects in New York. He received the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Communications Design in 2015 and KW Institute for Contemporary Art’s “A Year With…” residency fellowship in 2018. In March 2020, he initiated an online, participatory event series called Present! as part of the digital artist-led space Home Cooking. His ever-changing electronic book, P!DF, is available online.
