Laurel Nakadate was born in Austin, Texas in 1975. She attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and graduated from Yale's MFA program in photography in 2001. Originally working as a still photographer, she was selected as one of "25 under 25" in the seminal 2000 book and show of that name. Since then she has worked primarily in video. Her first video installation, "I Wanna Be Your Mid-Life Crisis", was one of the highlights of the 2002 Armory Show where it was exhibited by the Daniel Silverstein Gallery.

Nakadate's 2005 solo show at Danziger Projects, "Love Hotel and Other Stories," was featured in The New York Times, the Village Voice and FlashArt. Art critic, Jerry Saltz named her a "standout" in the 2005's "Greater New York" show at P.S.1.

Since then Nakadate's work has been exhibited at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the Asia Society, New York; the Reina Sofia, Madrid; the Berlin Biennial; Grand Arts, Kansas City; the Mary Boone Gallery, New York; and the Howard Yezersky Gallery in Boston.

A cover interview with the artist appeared in the October 2006 issue of The Believer and can be accessed online.

Nakadate currently lives and works in New York City.
