NEW SHOW: McQueen with his best film Oscar (PA)

BRAND NEW works of art by British Turner Prize and Oscar winner Steve McQueen are set to go on show later this year in London.

The exhibition will feature unseen pieces by the 12 Years A Slave director, who won best film at the Oscars in March, and will be displayed from October 14 at Thomas Dane Gallery.

The collection by McQueen is understood to focus on a film called Ashes, which will be projected at the show, and is set to be premiered in Tokyo later this month.

Organisers at the gallery said the exhibition “further extends the range of McQueen's enquiry into the image and image-making”.

Ashes represents McQueen’s first new work his 12 Years A Slave, which claimed three Oscars, including best adapted screenplay and best supporting actress for Lupita Nyong’o.

McQueen won the art world’s prestigious Turner Prize in 1999 and achieved several other notable accolades for his art before going on to become a film-maker who directed two other critically acclaimed films Hunger and Shame.
