The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major initiative for moving-image artists in the first five years of their practice. The fifth edition of the awards is called Unintended Consequences and is open to applicants 14 February – 4 April 2017.
Artists interested in submitting an application for the awards are invited to book a one-to-one appointment with Steven Bode, Director, FVU; or Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts. Both are able to answer questions about the selection process, the curatorial theme, and general questions about the application form, as well as the commissioning, production and exhibition process and what will be required from you should you be successful with your application.
Sarah and Steven will not be able to read draft applications during these sessions, but are happy to comment on verbal summaries of proposed applications, as well as to answer specific questions in relation to them.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella. For more information about Jerwood/FVU Awards 2018: Unintended Consequences please visit
These appointments are free to attend but places are very limited. Booking in advance is required; please email for information about the available slots. If you have a preference of whom you’d like to speak to please state this in your message.

Sweet Swollen is a new commission by Holly Graham. Comprising print and audio, these consider historic links between domestic culinary culture and visual culture within Europe.The works take as their starting point a pair of Meissen porcelain sweetmeat bowls that are currently on display in a collection in the Victoria and Albert Museum. These were made between 1765–75 and would have, at the time of their production, been considered an artisanal, luxury good, symbolizing the wealth and status of their owner. Visually, they each depict turfy mounds which prop up bowls to hold sugar or sweetened dried fruits, which are in turn flanked by caricatured ‘blackamoor’ figures who gesture towards the food products in the bowls in front of them. These are part of a wider tradition of similar figurines that embody, and silently testify to, financial gain through processes of colonial exploitation.

New works by Rob Crosse, Susie Green and Georgia Horgan presented as three solo presentations at Jerwood Space. Diverse in content and materials, the solo presentations span painting, sculpture, installation, film, and photography, expanding upon the artists’ existing dialogues to position sex, intimacy and desire in a socio-political context.
