Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022


The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 premieres two newly commissioned moving-image installations. Details on the artists and commissions will be announced in spring 2022.

Following a nationwide call for applications at the beginning of 2020, each selected artist was awarded £25,000 to develop significant new moving-image works with Film and Video Umbrella (FVU) for exhibition at Jerwood Arts and Leeds Art Gallery. The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 returns to a biennial model following five annual editions, allowing artists a longer production period to fulfil the ambition of their proposals.

Selectors: Hetain Patel, artist; Rehana Zaman, artist; Susanna Chisholm, Programme Development Director, FVU; Harriet Cooper, Head of Visual Arts, Jerwood Arts; Holly Grange, Exhibitions Curator, Leeds Art Gallery.

The commissioned works will launch at Jerwood Space, London in May 2022 before touring to Leeds Art Gallery in Autumn 2022. This new partnership with Leeds Art Gallery represents an exciting new chapter for the Awards, providing awarded artists opportunities to connect with audiences across Yorkshire, alongside a programme of events and outreach work promoting deepened relationships with Yorkshire-based artists.

The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 are a collaboration between Jerwood Arts and Film and Video Umbrella, in a new partnership with Leeds Art Gallery. They were established in 2012 in response to a need for significant major commissions for early-career moving-image artists, the awards contribute to an ongoing dialogue around urgent or timely concerns within moving image.
