Visions in the Nunnery – a renowned showcase of contemporary moving image and performance work – is returning to Bow Arts’ Nunnery Gallery, London for a special celebratory tenth edition. Selected from over 1500 world-wide submissions, combined with a star-studded list of invited artists and previous exhibitors, the show will present a unique and exciting platform for cutting edge digital and performance art.
Established in 1999, Visions offers an informed overview of the provocative and quick-changing mediums of moving image and performance. The 2016 exhibition will showcase over 100 artists’ work through an innovative six-part programme, punctuated by 12 events featuring live performances in the gallery and its unique Victorian enclosed courtyard. Exhibition partners include Artsadmin, who are lending Steve Lambert’s iconic and interactive installation Capitalism Works For Me! True/False, LIMA, an international platform for media art, who will lend a variety of work including Marina Abramović’s The Scream and the Rotterdam-based Unnoticed Art Festival.
The first London showing of Dryden Goodwin’s work Poised, originally commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella, will open the exhibition during Frieze week – Visions is one of Frieze’s recommended not-for-profit shows – with works alongside focusing on the body and close observation, including work from Federica Marangoni (5-20 Oct). A special event for Frieze’s East End Night will close the first week, featuring Patrick Simkins’ live and interactive performance Dance and Draw.
