Jerwood Staging Series is a curatorial project designed to provide a London platform for event-based presentations of work, including film screenings, performances, readings and discussion.
Launched in 2016, the project traditionally takes place in the empty gallery spaces at Jerwood Space, enabling artists and curators to premiere ambitious new ideas. To date over 60 artists, curators, writers and researchers have taken part in Jerwood Staging Series events.
Curated by Jerwood Arts, editions of the project from 2016-2019 have been led by Sarah Williams, Oliver Fuke, Lauren Houlton and Harriet Cooper.
Jerwood Staging Series 2022: This special edition for autumn 2022 will celebrate the final season of the exhibitions and events programme at Jerwood Space. Curated by Jerwood Arts, we invited leading visual artists from our Artist Adviser network to nominate exceptional artists from across the UK for these commissions. The four selected artists/collaborations are Ashanti Harris (nominated by Nicola Singh), Sadia Pineda Hameed & Beau Beakhouse (nominated by Kelly Best). Samiir Saunders (nominated by Antonio Roberts) and Rieko Whitfield (nominated by Harold Offeh). Find out more…
