Corin Sworn selected for the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards


We are pleased to announce that Corin Sworn, whose work will be featured in the upcoming exhibition Endless Renovation, is one of the recipients of the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards. This award is presented in partner with Jerwood Visual Art (JVA) and Film and Video Umbrella Awards. It provides a £4,000 bursary for the artists to develop pre-production proposals for significant new works, that will be showcased in the exhibition  Tomorrow Never Knows to be held at the The Jerwood Space, London from March 14 to April 22, 2012.

Here’s what the award’s website has to say about their exhibition:

“Tomorrow Never Knows, will consider the artists’ own individual ‘projects for the future’ against the larger theme of ‘futures past’, offering reminders of the fleeting nature or the untapped potential of earlier manifestations of the future, whilst also reflecting on the uncertainties of futurology.”

During the exhibition, Corin Sworn will once again be under review, this time for the opportunity to recieve one of two £20,000 commissions to develop her proposal into a finished work to appear at The Jerwood Space in 2013.

Congratulations to Corin and the other award recipients Ed Atkins, Emma Hart, and Naheed Raza!

Meredith Carr, CAG Curatorial Intern
