This January, the recipients of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards, Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza, premiere their ambitious new commissions at Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA), Jerwood Space, London. Presented as the second part of the exhibition Tomorrow Never Knows, the new works will be on show from 16 January until 24 February 2013.
The exhibition is the culmination of the first two-year cycle of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards. This initiative occupies a distinctive place alongside other awards for contemporary moving-image artists. It supports young and emerging talents and focuses on practical, developmental support, in which the nurturing of ideas and expertise is consolidated by substantial production opportunities. Alongside this support of future talent, the project speculates on ideas and images of ‘the future’, and different perceptions of that future in the present and in the past.
