Winner of the Prix de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts in 2015 and resident at the Villa Medici in Rome in 2017, she has had numerous exhibitions of international importance, notably at the Palais de Tokyo (Inside, 2014) and at the Palazzo Dei Diamanti in Ferrara in 2018, at the Museum Pfalzgalerie in Kaiserslautern in 2019, at the Hayward Gallery in 2020, at the Het Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch (Paper Tales, 2021) and more recently at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris (Galleria, 2021).
The artist also unveiled several monumental and immersive installations as part of specific commissions, for example in the center of the Cour Carrée du Louvre (Panorama, 2016), or at the Abbey of Montmajour (Cenotaph, 2020) ; signed the creation of an incredible set of embroidered panels for the Dior Haute Couture fashion show 2021-2022 (Chambre de Soie, 2021) and realized the monumental décor of the Dior spring-summer 2023 fashion show (Nymphées, 2022).
Eva Jospin also created permanent works such as the installation Folie, at the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, inaugurated in 2015, La Traversée at Beaupassage in 2018, Paris and Le Passage in Nantes in 2019.
