Our Exhibitions

This map details the venues that we have worked with over our three decade history, with each pin listing the specific exhibitions shown at each venue.


Film and Video Umbrella makes moving-image works by artists. For three decades FVU has led the way in championing new creative talent and promoting innovative ideas. During that time we have commissioned many of the foremost figures in the field, working in close collaboration with a diverse range of venues, nationally and internationally. Browse our project page to find out more and view clips of the works.  


We aim to run at least one open call opportunity per year. Please sign up to our e-bulletin for updates.

Melanie Manchot | White Light Black Snow

In echo of her previous works in choreography, Melanie Manchot's new film Cadence shows an aerial view of a black horse creating a pattern of footprints in white snow. Manchot also formally returns to photography for the first time in many years, presenting a series of photographs alongside the film. In many, scale is hard to discern, animals may or may not be alive or taxidermied, and we question what we are looking at, what is real and what is modelled, what is being photographed and what is represented.

Parafin, London, 28 September – 17 November 2018
