Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards: 'What Will They See of Me?'12. Mar - 27. Apr 14 / ended JVA at Jerwood Space
Jerwood Space, London, 12 March – 27 April 2014
CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, as part of Glasgow International, 4 – 21 April 2014
On 12 March the four shortlisted artists for the second edition of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards; Lucy Clout, Kate Cooper, Anne Haaning and Marianna Simnett, will premiere new pilot works in an exhibition at Jerwood Space, London, before opening at CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow on 4 April - as part of Glasgow International. This will mark the first time the Awards will feature in this significant international biennial festival of contemporary art.
The Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards are major awards for moving-image artists in the first five years of their practice. Last summer the shortlisted artists were awarded bursaries of £4,000 to allow them to research and develop new project ideas. Each artist has since responded to the curatorial brief and title ‘What Will They See of Me?’, with their four proposals exploring themes of identity, visibility and posterity in ways that both embrace and interrogate new technology and express a strong and compelling performative impulse.
During the concurrent exhibitions in London and Glasgow in March/April this year, two of the four artists will be selected to receive a further £20,000 commission, enabling them to develop these initial ideas into expanded works. These pieces will then be exhibited once again at Jerwood Space, London, and then CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, in 2015.
The Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards: 'What Will They See of Me?' are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella in association with CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow and University of East London, School of Arts and Digital Industries. Film and Video Umbrella is supported by Arts Council England
