Exhibition Announcement: Jerwood/FVU Awards 2018: Unintended Consequences

Jerwood Space, London, 6 April - 3 June 2018

Celebrating its fifth edition, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella proudly introduce the new exhibition Jerwood/FVU Awards 2018: Unintended Consequences, which will premiere two moving-image commissions by Maeve Brennan and Imran Perretta. These significant new works have been developed following an award of £20,000 to each artist in June last year.  Following its debut at Jerwood Space, London from 6 April to 3 June 2018 the show will travel to arts venues across the UK.

At a moment when world events are so volatile and turbulent that it’s hard to predict what might happen next, the curatorial theme Unintended Consequences has provoked two artists’ projects that reflect the complex, entangled nature of contemporary experience.
