We are joined by three artists from the Jerwood/FVU Awards to discuss their experience of being selected. Patrick Hough (2017), Guy Oliver (2020) and Reman Sadani (2020) reflect on the application process, the reality of making their proposals into moving-image works and the impact of the award on their own practice. Chaired by Jerwood Arts Director Lilli Geissendorfer, this conversation offers a candid insight for artists who are thinking about applying this year.
What are the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022?
The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 are a major opportunity for UK-based moving-image artists in the first five years of developing their professional practice. They will award two £25,000 commissions for new moving-image works.
Jerwood Arts and Film and Video Umbrella invite early-career artists to make proposals for ambitious new works in any form of the moving-image. Two proposals are selected by a panel consisting of practicing artists and arts programmers/curators, for commission, production, exhibition and tour from November 2020 through to 2022. This edition of the awards launches a new partnership with Leeds Art Gallery who will host the premiere exhibition of the new commissions in January 2022.
