Surveying 10 years of the Film London Jarman Award, this exhibition includes moving image work by previous winners from 2008–2017: Luke Fowler, Lindsay Seers, Emily Wardill, Anja Kirschner & David Panos, James Richards, John Smith, Ursula Mayer, Seamus Harahan, Heather Phillipson and Oreet Ashery.


The Film London Jarman Award was named in honour of Derek Jarman (b.1942), the artist whose imagination, singularity of vision and collaborative practice breathed fresh life into British filmmaking, and whose work continues to inspire new generations of artists.

Since 2008, the Award has celebrated the creative spirit of artists working today, rewarding challenging and innovative work and helping to establish the place of the moving image within the art world.

This exhibition provides a survey of the artists’ shifting concerns, techniques and use of media throughout the Award’s first decade.

The exhibition includes work by previous winners from 2008–2017: Luke Fowler, Lindsay Seers, Emily Wardill, Anja Kirschner & David Panos, James Richards, John Smith, Ursula Mayer, Seamus Harahan, Heather Phillipson and Oreet Ashery, alongside films commissioned from shortlisted artists by Channel 4.

Exhibition curated by Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery.
